SVI Policy Configuration

Here are the main points to keep in mind:

  • The configuration requires a nested policy-map
  • The policy-map applied to the SVI references another policy map that actually does the policing
  • Do not forget to enable vlan-based QoS on the appropriate range of ports
  • In the parent policy-map, you must perform some action (besides calling another policy map)

In order to configure policing on a Switched Virtual Interface (SVI or VLAN interface), here is a sample configuration:

Notice we set the DSCP value in the parent policy map in order to  meet the requirement of “performing some action!” Also remember, both of the sample configurations above require mls qos configured globally on the device.
