integer

Average queue size in packets at which RED drop probability is maximal.

maximum_bandwidth_percentage

integer

Maximum bandwidth in percentage.

min

integer

Average queue size in packets at which RED drop becomes a possibility.

priority

string

Priority.

Choices:

  • top

  • critical

  • high

  • medium

  • low

red_probability

integer

Maximum probability (in percentage) for RED marking.

type

string

Select shaping profile type: policing / queuing.

Choices:

  • policing

  • queuing

member_path

string

Member attribute path to operate on.

Delimited by a slash character if there are more than one attribute.
