policy qos name <policy-name> shaper profile <profile-name> queue <queue-id>

Controls the definition of the queue ID on the output port of a packet for forwarding or scheduling.

Note: On software platforms, all profiles have 32 queues by default — whether or not the configuration lists them explicitly. However, you can only use a profile queue that has a set of DSCP or PCP values assigned to it.

It is possible to assign all 64 DSCP values to queue 0.

The delete policy qos name <policy-name> shaper profile <profile-name> queue <queue-id> command doesn't actually delete the queue — it just removes the queue's configuration from the displayed configuration.

The queue ID is associated with a QoS policy profile. The queue can restrict traffic based on bandwidth and burst.
