Description (partial)


Symptoms: When using COS markings for color-aware policing all packets are handled as 'violate color' regardless of the received bit rate or ingress COS markings.

Conditions: This symptom is observed in an MPLS L2 VPN network where a CE router is Ethernet connected to a PE router via a dot1q subinterface.  Color aware policing is configured on the PE interface and COS markings received from the CE are used to define conform and exceed color.  This issue was first observed on a 7200 running SRC IOS.
