priority-group list-number

no priority-group list-number

Syntax Description:


Priority list number assigned to the interface. Any number from 1 to 16.

Command Description:

To assign the specified priority list to an interface, use the priority-group interface configuration command. To remove the specified priority group assignment, use the no form of this command.

Only one list can be assigned per interface. Priority output queueing provides a mechanism to prioritize packets transmitted on an interface.

Use the show queueing priority and show interfaces commands to display the current status of the output queues.


The following example causes packets for transmission on serial interface 0 to be classified by priority list 1:

Router(config)#interface serial 0
Router(config-if)#priority-group 1

The following sample configuration shows how to establish queueing priorities based on the address of the serial link on a STUN connection. Note that you must use the priority-group interface configuration command to assign a priority group to an output interface.

stun peer-name
stun protocol-group 1 sdlc
interface serial 0
! Disable the ip address for interface serial 0:
no ip address
! Enable the interface for STUN:
encapsulation stun
stun group 2
stun route address 10 tcp local-ack priority
! Assign priority group 1 to the input side of interface serial 0:
priority-group 1
! Assign a low priority to priority list 1 on serial link identified
! by group 2 and address A7:
priority-list 1 stun low address 2 A7
