ETS Feature

ETS allocates link bandwidth based on the ETS setting on a link. Different traffic types might have different network bandwidth requirements. With a traffic class identifier, one or more priorities can be grouped together for the purpose of bandwidth allocation. The number of traffic types that can be supported cannot exceed the number of traffic classes supported.

Before you configure the ETS, you must identify the priority to the traffic class mapping based on the the network traffic types and the bandwidth requirement for each traffic class. Traffic classes from 0 to 7 are available for bandwidth allocation.

The ETS feature is an asymmetric parameter exchange feature. The desired ETS configuration for the peer does not have to match the local ETS configuration.
