Information

 
TitleCannot create Meter in EXOS because of default port groups
Symptoms
ERROR : Meter test cannot be created. Hardware does not support global meters while per-port meters are configured or used by rules.
        You must first remove reference to per-port meters in rules and unconfigure existing per-port meters.

 
Environment
  • EXOS 
  • Summit X670G2-48x-4q
Cause
  • Two default portgroups "Default (IRL.1)"  and "Default (TXQ.0)" were causing the problem to create Meter test even though no per-port Meter was configured on the switch.
Resolution
  • Meter Test can be created by deleting the default portgroups "Default (IRL.1)" and "Default (TXQ.0)"  .
1) delete ports group "Default (IRL.1)"
2) delete ports group "Default (TXQ.0)"
  • Please also note that you have to remove meters from the dot1p mappings to be able to create a meter test. 
  • For example, You have dot1p binding to meters: 

    configure dot1p type 0 qosprofile QP1 ingress-meter ingmeter0 
    configure dot1p type 1 qosprofile QP2 ingress-meter ingmeter1 
    configure dot1p type 2 qosprofile QP3 ingress-meter ingmeter2 
    configure dot1p type 3 qosprofile QP4 ingress-meter ingmeter3 
    configure dot1p type 4 qosprofile QP5 ingress-meter ingmeter4 
    configure dot1p type 5 qosprofile QP6 ingress-meter ingmeter5 
    configure dot1p type 6 qosprofile QP7 ingress-meter ingmeter6 
    configure dot1p type 7 qosprofile QP8 ingress-meter ingmeter7
 
  • Delete meter from dot1p mappings by using the following command to create a "Meter Test":
    configure dot1p type 0 qosprofile qp1 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 1 qosprofile qp2 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 2 qosprofile qp3 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 3 qosprofile qp4 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 4 qosprofile qp5 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 5 qosprofile qp6 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 6 qosprofile qp7 ingress-meter none 
    configure dot1p type 7 qosprofile qp8 ingress-meter none
Additional notes
  • Please note that deleting those default portgroups ("Default (IRL.1)" "Default (TXQ.0)") will not have any impact on the switch.
