Command:

priority-list default

Mode:

Router(config)#

Syntax:

priority-list list-number default {high | medium | normal | low}

no priority-list list-number

Syntax Description:

list-number

Any number from 1 to 16 that identifies the priority list.

high | medium | normal | low

Priority queue level. The normal queue is used, if you use the no form of this command.


Command Description:

To assign a priority queue for those packets that do not match any other rule in the priority list, use the priority-list default global configuration command. To return to the default or assign normal as the default, use the no form of this command.

When you use multiple rules, remember the system reads the priority settings in order of appearance. When classifying a packet, the system searches the list of rules specified by priority-list commands for a matching protocol or interface type. When a match is found, the system assigns the packet to the appropriate queue. The system searches the list in the order it is specified, and the first matching rule terminates the search.


Example:

The following example sets the priority queue for those packets that do not match any other rule in the priority list to a low priority:

router(config)#priority-list 1 default low
