Configuring the share port level for an egress buffer profile

The share port level for an egress buffer profile defines the maximum number of buffers that a port can use as a portion of the total memory.

Note: The configuration of the egress buffer share port level is supported only on the Ruckus ICX 7150. For the Ruckus ICX 7250, ICX 7450, ICX 7650, and ICX 7850 devices, you can change the queue share level for an individual queue which has a finer granularity than the port share level for an individual port.

After the egress-buffer share port level is defined, it can be associated with one or more ports.

Perform the following steps to configure the egress-buffer share port level.

  1. Enter global configuration mode.
    
    device# configure terminal
    
  2. Configure the share level.
    
    device(config)# qos egress-buffer-profile egress2 port-share-level level3-1/16
    
    In this step, the egress2 buffer profile is configured with a queue share level 3 for a maximum 1/16 portion of the total buffer memory that can be used in a sharing pool.
  3. Access interface mode for the port to which you want to apply the profile.
    
    device(config)# interface ethernet 2/1/4
    
  4. Attach the profile to the port.
    
    device(config-if-e10000-2/1/4)# egress-buffer-profile egress2
    
  5. Return to privileged EXEC mode.
    
    device(config)# Ctrl-z
    
  6. Verify the configuration
    
    device# show qos egress-buffer-profile egress2
    Egress Buffer Profile: egress2
    Ports attached:  2/1/4
    
    Port share level: level3-1/16
    
  7. Save the configuration.
    
    device# write memory
