show policy qos <interface-name> brief

Displays an abbreviated version of the output from the show policy qos <interface> command.

The show policy qos <interface> command displays counters for all 32 profile queues of each QoS policy. Depending upon how the profile map maps PCP values/DSCP values/DSCP groups/designations to profile queues during the third stage of classification, this stage may not enqueue any packets to some profile queues.

This variant of the show policy qos <interface> command just displays profile queues that can have packets queued on them.

Class
The class, where class 0 is the default class as handled by the default profile.
TC
The traffic class for which QoS displays statistics.
WRR
The weighted round robin queue number of the parent traffic class.
Pipe-QID
The profile queue identifier, as in profile <profile-name> queue <queue-id>.
Qlength
The number of packets or bytes that are currently waiting on the profile queue.
PLQ
The priority local queue. If you configured QoS to use a profile queue for priority local traffic, then you will see an asterisk (*) next to the profile queue that you set.
Counters
The rows in this column are as follows:
bytes
The number of bytes that QoS has classified to the traffic class.
packets
The number of packets that QoS has classified to the traffic class.
Tail-drop
The number of packets that QoS has dropped because the queues in the traffic classes were full.
RED-drop
The number of packets that QoS has randomly dropped for the traffic class.
