This keyword exists for 'organizational' purposes only, to structure the configuration path for relevant command strings.
qos
This keyword exists for 'organizational' purposes only, to structure the configuration path for relevant command strings.
name <policy-name>
Specifies the name of a QoS policy.
shaper
This keyword exists for 'organizational' purposes only, to structure the configuration path for relevant command strings.
class <class-id>
Specifies the numeric identifier of a QoS policy class.
match <rule-name>

police
This keyword exists mainly for 'organizational' purposes, to structure the configuration path for relevant command strings. However, it also introduces some additional bandwidth or rate limit restrictions on packets that the system identifies by the match rule that you specify elsewhere in the command string.
frame-overhead <overhead>

Defines an additional allowance to the length of a packet in bytes that a shaper can make during calculation of bandwidth. You can adjust this to make the QoS scheduler more accurate.
