CCNP / ONT Exam:

You’re configuring Priority Queueing. How many queues exist by default, and how many packets can each queue hold?

Answer: There are four default queues – High (20), Medium (40), Normal (60), and Low (80). These are configurable. For example, the following command will double the Normal queue’s capacity while leaving the others unchanged. Even if you’re just changing one queue’s limit, you still have to name a value for each queue.

Below, I’ve used IOS Help to show the order in which the queue sizes are defined. The bolded command is the final command.

R3(config)#priority-list 1 queue-limit ?

High limit

R3(config)#priority-list 1 queue-limit 20 ?

Medium limit

R3(config)#priority-list 1 queue-limit 20 40 ?

Normal limit

R3(config)#priority-list 1 queue-limit 20 40 120 ?

Lower limit

R3(config)#priority-list 1 queue-limit 20 40 120 80 ?

R3(config)#priority-list 1 queue-limit 20 40 120 80
