Global traffic prioritization

Global traffic prioritization allows your traffic to be prioritized as high (2), medium (3), or low (4) based on ToS (type of service) or DSCP. When using ToS-based priority, integers 0 to 15 can be used, which correspond to the definitions of the ToS field values in RFC 1349. When using DSCP, values 0 to 63 can be used, which correspond to the six bits in the DSCP value.

The outbandwidth must be defined in order for global prioritization to take effect. When the outbandwidth is defined on an interface without an applied egress-shaping-profile, the interface has a total of five priority levels:
