QoS Class Numbers

L2 Linker

Hi Everyone!

 

Just a quick question about classes in PanOS. I can see that there are eight classes named Class1 - Class8.

As we use QoS profile rules to assign bandwidth and priority to a class, is the class I choose somewhat arbitrary?

 

For example, I want to assign voice and video traffic to a class, and make it a high-priority class.

Can I choose any class, or do I need to choose 'Class1'?

 

Thanks

Hi @Luke_R ,

 

It's totally arbitrary.  Just note that Class4 is somewhat special.  It's the default class.  Any session that does not have a specific class assigned to it will be controlled by this class.

 

For a nice getting started guide on QoS I'd recommend checking out this KB article:
