Group  Port-channel  Protocol    Ports
------+-------------+-----------+-----------------------------------------------
1      Po1(SU)         LACP      Te1/0/47(P) Te1/0/48(P)

 

I also would like to stop the drops by applying:

 

  Policy Map TEST_BUFFER
    Class class-default
      bandwidth 100 (%)
      queue-buffers ratio 100

 

But since the auto QoS has been used on another port (and I can't remove it), I need to adjust my solution. Can anyone help me how to make adjustment Policy Map TEST_BUFFER so I can stop the output drops on Te1/1/6.

 

  Policy Map AutoQos-4.0-Output-Policy
    Class AutoQos-4.0-Output-Priority-Queue
      priority level 1 30 (%)
    Class AutoQos-4.0-Output-Control-Mgmt-Queue
      bandwidth remaining 10 (%)
      queue-limit dscp cs2 percent 80
      queue-limit dscp cs3 percent 90
      queue-limit dscp cs6 percent 100
      queue-limit dscp cs7 percent 100
      queue-buffers ratio 10
    Class AutoQos-4.0-Output-Multimedia-Conf-Queue
      bandwidth remaining 10 (%)
      queue-buffers ratio 10
    Class AutoQos-4.0-Output-Trans-Data-Queue

      queue-buffers ratio 10
    Class AutoQos-4.0-Output-Scavenger-Queue
      bandwidth remaining 1 (%)
      queue-buffers ratio 10
    Class AutoQos-4.0-Output-Multimedia-Strm-Queue
      bandwidth remaining 10 (%)
      queue-buffers ratio 10
    Class class-default
      bandwidth remaining 25 (%)
      queue-buffers ratio 25

  Policy Map AutoQos-4.0-Trust-Cos-Input-Policy
    Class class-default
      set cos cos table AutoQos-4.0-Trust-Cos-Table

 

Thanks heaps for your time to assist me on this.

Thanks.

You can configure the test policy-map and increase the buffer. I guess you already looked at this guide but i paste the link in case not:
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/switches/catalyst-3850-series-switches/200594-Catalyst-3850-Troubleshooting-Output-dr.html?referring_site=RE&pos=2&page=https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/routers/10000-series-routers/6343-queue-drop...

Doing that you'll certainly remove drops.
You need to monitor that interface to see what type of traffic is really passing through to figure out why you have lot of drops.

Do you have voice traffic on your network?
If yes you can begin with your policy-map for few days and then add a class-map for voice traffic as priority level 1 and so forth for all classes you need for each type of traffic.

Re: Similar output drops between Port Channel and Trunk port - 3850-12X48U

Hi

Drops on the interface aren't all bad. It can be by design if the uper layer is 10G and downstream is 1G.
You can build your own policy-map and apply it to a specific interface. You'll need to remove the auto qos in that specific interfaces before applying your policy-map.

But before creating your policy-map, i would recommend to create your business class-map like voice, video,... and default. Assign the right percentage of allowed bandwidth for each classes otherwise it can be worse than today.

To troubleshooting your drops, you can paste the output of show interface te1/1/6 switching and show interface te1/1/6 stats...

Thanks

Re: Similar output drops between Port Channel and Trunk port - 3850-12X48U

Hi Francesco, thanks for the response.

So are you saying this will work: remove the auto QoS (say from port A) and put a customised port on Te1/1/6 and re-apply the auto QoS on port A?

Do you know why the drops value of Te1/1/6 exactly match with Te1/0/47?

Here's the output of show command that you suggested:

SW01#sh int Te1/1/6 switch

Operational Mode: trunk

Re: Similar output drops between Port Channel and Trunk port - 3850-12X48U

If you remove auto qos and apply your policy-map, you can't reapply the auto qos. That's why i said you'll need to define all class-map correctly.

Can you rerun the command by typing the complete word switching: sh int te1/1/6 switching

Thanks
