Error-disabling a port in such a case may re-route the traffic via different port to the destination if possible.

Weighted Round Robin Scheduling

EOS supports different scheduling policies which dictate the way packets at different transmit queues leave the egress port. Currently EOS supports Strict Priority (SP) and Weighted Round Robin(WRR). Default scheduling policy is Strict Priority. Weighted Round Robin scheduling allows packets at different transmit queues to be serviced in round-robin manner in accordance to the weights assigned to those transmit queues. Users will be able to configure the set of queues to participate in WRR scheduling and will also be able configure the weights for those queues. At any given point, EOS allows some transmit queues to participate in SP and some to participate in WRR, the condition being the scheduling policy has...
