What switch and version?  By default Priority 0-6 are mapped to QP1.  PFC uses the same mapping that dot1p uses.

That's good.  What version of EXOS are you running?

Danial,

Because PFC 0-2 works I would say that it's a bug with the limited information collected.  I would upgrade to the Engineering recommended code "16.1.3.6-patch1-9" because 15.3 is no longer supported.

Secondly whenever i changing the mapping using configure dot1p type command .. which ever priority i give to qp4,qp5,qp6 the same problem is there.. i mean for example if i assign priority 1 to qp4 then if i intend to pause priority 1 the priorities assigned to qp5, qp6 regardless of their value are also paused. so its not the priority i think its the QOS profile that has a bug. because any priority value assigned to QP4,qp5, qp6, shows the same problem.. what do u think?

Could there be any other reason apart from old patch?

Hi Danial, what EXOS version you are using now?

Did you already opened a GTAC case?

When using PFC with priority >=4 , you say that the every queue is paused. Did you perform a packet capture to confirm that the switch is sending the PFC packets with wrong PFC priority values?

Danial,

If your in need of a faster response I would recommend opening a TAC case.  Saying that this issue looks like a bug i would open also open a case.
