I have been assigned the task of finding out what configuration is needed for an Arista 7160 switch. Below is the configuration I have come up with so far. If someone can tell me I’m on the right path or if I am totally wrong, I would appreciate it.

dcbx application udp 4791 priority 3
dcbx ets qos map cos 3 traffic-class 3
dcbx ets traffic-class 3 bandwidth 50
!
qos profile RDMA
qos trust cos
qos cos 3
priority-flow-control mode on
priority-flow-control priority 3 no-drop

Hi Lynn,

Based on the configuration I have made the following assumptions:

– You are trying to provide 50% BW of the port to RoCE traffic.
– RDMA traffic is mapped to the TC3 which is defined to be a No-loss queue.

The basic configuration-components for the above mention requirements are already present in your configuration. But I can see you have configured QOS features along with DCBX/PFC configuration.
Since it would need a better understanding of your requirements to provide an accurate answer to your query, I would recommend getting in touch with TAC by emailing support@arista.com.
Regards,
Vijay
