Symptom: QOS marking not working as expected, we see the packets correctly matched under the class but the the set operation is not working. Conditions: Issue is seen when we have long and identical names for the policy map and class-map. The issue here happens due to duplicate set-ids being sent to qos-pd. The set-id for an action is generated by hashing the string for the policy-name, class-name & action-string combination to an integer value (referred as config-index). The max-length of the action-string (policy-name+class-name+action) for the hash-function to compute a config-index for an action is 80 characters Sample Policy : policy-map TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_TEST-EXP class TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_ACL1-CLASS-A set mpls experimental imposition 3 service-policy QOS_TEST-GRE class TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_ACL1-CLASS-B set mpls experimental imposition 2 service-policy QOS_TEST-GRE class TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_ACL1-CLASS-C set mpls experimental imposition 1 service-policy QOS_TEST-GRE class TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_ACL1-CLASS-D set mpls experimental imposition 0 service-policy QOS_TEST-GRE class class-default set mpls experimental imposition 2 service-policy QOS_TEST-GRE The action-string being used to generate config-indexes becomes effectively the same for all user-defined classes of the policy : TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_TEST-EXP TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_ACL1 Verification : sh platform hardware qfp active feature qos psqd input interface TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000 : Class index: 0, Class object id: 2031425, Match index: 0 Class name: TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_ACL1-CLASS-A, Policy name: TenGigabitEthernet0/0/0.1000-QOS_TEST-EXP psqd[0-3]: 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 The above value should be : psqd[0-3]: 0x00000300 0x00000020 0x00000000 0x00000000 --> 03 is for exp 3, 0x20 is "set mpls exp'
