Network > Network Profiles > QoS
Add a QoS profile to define the bandwidth limits and priority for up to eight classes of service. You can set both guaranteed and maximum bandwidth limits for individual classes and for the collective classes. Priorities determine how traffic is treated in the presence of contention.
To fully enable the firewall to provide QoS, also:
- Define the traffic that you want to receive QoS treatment (select Policies > QoS to add or modify a QoS policy).
- Enable QoS on an interface (select Network > QoS).
See Quality of Service for complete QoS workflows, concepts, and use cases.
QoS Profile Settings
Enter a name to identify the profile (up to 31 characters). The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Enter the maximum throughput (in Mbps) for traffic leaving the firewall through this interface. The value is 0 by default, which specifies the firewall limit (60,000 Mbps in PAN-OS 7.1.16 and later releases; 16,000 in PAN-OS 7.1.15 and earlier releases).
The Egress Max for a QoS profile must be less than or equal to the Egress Max for the physical interface enabled with QoS. See Network > QoS.
Though this is not a required field, it is recommended to always define the Egress Max for a QoS profile.
Enter the bandwidth that is guaranteed for this profile (Mbps). When the egress guaranteed bandwidth is exceeded, the firewall passes traffic on a best-effort basis.
Add and specify how to treat individual QoS classes. You can select one or more classes to configure:
Though this is not a required field, we recommend you always define the Egress Max value for a QoS profile.
