Cannot apply traffic queue priority numbers correctly on 2.3.1 for PRIQ
I honestly don't know if this is specific to the 2.3.1 upgrade however I know the problem only showed up on a server I upgraded to 2.3.1. I didn't exactly notice this immediately after my upgrade as my primary vlan was not altered in any noticeable way. I have PRIQ setup with a breakdown of queues for Streaming, BizCritcal, HighWeb, etc… 14 categories in total. Anyway, I needed to use the guest network for a laptop and noticed youtube was loading really slow. It actually took me a few minutes to realize the queues might be affecting it and sure enough after checking I noticed my youtube traffic was dropping into the default qLink queue. The interface was missing the "Streaming" queue and many others I had setup previously before my upgrade so I recreated it and the traffic dropped into the queue correctly. I then attempted to recreate some other missing queues for that vlan interface and when I clicked save I received a message saying I could not set the priority number higher than 7....this is odd because I have several queue priorities already assigned ranging from 14 to 2....even on the interface I'm trying to save it to.
I verified the scheduler type on the interface is set to PRIQ so I'm not sure if I'm missing something. Is this a bug?
Thanks for the help.
