In what order does an applied traffic policy take effect on S series switches

For S series switches (except the S1700), a traffic policy can be applied in the system view, interface view, and VLAN view simultaneously. When applying a traffic policy in multiple views, configure the traffic policy in the sequence of interface view, VLAN view, and system view.
When multiple traffic policies are applied in different views and packets simultaneously match different traffic policies, the traffic policies take effect in the following orders:
- If traffic classification rules in the traffic policies are of the same type, that is, the rules are all user-defined ACL rules, Layer 2 rules, or Layer 3 rules, only one traffic policy takes effect. The traffic policy that takes effect depends on the view in which the traffic policy has been applied. The view priority is as follows: interface view > VLAN view > system view.
- For cards of modular switches except X series cards and fixed switches S5700HI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5710HI, S6700EI, S6720EI, and S6720S-EI, if traffic classification rules in the traffic policies are of different types and actions in traffic behaviors do not conflict, traffic policies in all views take effect. If actions in traffic behaviors conflict, only one traffic policy takes effect and the traffic policy that takes effect is relevant to rules. The rule priority is as follows: Layer 2 rule and Layer 3 rule > advanced ACL6 rule > basic ACL6 rule > Layer 3 rule > Layer 2 rule > user-defined ACL rule.
- For X series cards of modular switches and E series and S series fixed switches S600-E, S1720GFR, S1720GW-E, S1720GWR-E, S2720, S2750, 5700SI, S5700LI, S5700S-LI, S5720LI, S5720S-LI, S5710-X-LI, S5720SI, S5720S-SI, and S5720HI, if traffic classification rules in the traffic policies are of different types, the traffic policy in only one view takes effect and the traffic policy that takes effect is relevant to the view in which it is applied. The view priority is as follows: interface view > VLAN view > system view.
It is recommended that you configure the traffic policy based on the priority. Otherwise, the configured traffic policy may not take effect immediately.
Note: MQC cannot be configured on the S2700SI.
