Matching EXP bits in ME3600

For anyone else in the future who may be experiencing a similar issue:

Problem turned out to be QoS ACL matching conditions. Docs here state:

“Not all IP ACL options are supported in QoS ACLs. Only these protocols are supported for permit actions in an IP ACL: TCP, and UDP

Although you can configure many options in ACLs, only some are supported for QoS ACLs.

For permit protocol , the supported keywords are: tcp , and udp .
For source and destination address, the supported entries are ip-address , any , or host .
For match criteria, the supported keywords are dscp or tos . You can also specify a time-range.”

I ended up having to modify the ACLs to only match on IP and remove the ICMP ACE and it works.

Working on ME3600X-24FS on 15.4(3)S6a and I am testing out a very simple QoS
policy and it’s not working. Here’s my config:

class-map match-all ING-EF-CLASS
match access-group name EF-CLASS-ACL
class-map match-all ING-EF-CLASS-EXP
match mpls experimental topmost 5
ip access-list extended EF-CLASS-ACL
permit udp any any dscp ef
permit udp any any dscp cs5
permit udp any any precedence critical
permit icmp any any dscp ef
deny ip any any
policy-map ING-UPLINK
set ip dscp ef
set mpls experimental topmost 5
interface GigabitEthernet0/24
no switchport
mtu 9800
ip address
ip mtu 9100
ip router isis
mpls ip
mpls mtu 9100
service-policy input ING-UPLINK
It seems that every packet on the wire is matching the class ‘ING-EF-CLASS-
ME3600X#sh policy-map interface
