Per-VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree (PVRST+) allows rapid spanning tree re-convergence on a per-VLAN spanning tree basis, without requiring the implementation of spanning tree instances.
Switch-port auto-recovery (error disable) automatically attempts to reactivate a link that is disabled because of a network error.

Enhanced Quality of Service

Up to eight egress queues per port and strict priority queuing so that the highest priority packets are serviced ahead of all other traffic.
Shaped Round Robin (SRR) scheduling and Weighted Tail Drop (WTD) congestion avoidance.
Flow-based rate limiting and up to 256 aggregate or individual polices per port.
802.1p Class of Service (CoS) and Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) classification, with marking and reclassification on a per-packet basis by source and destination IP address, MAC address, or Layer-4 TCP/UDP port number.
The Cisco Committed Information Rate (CIR) function provides bandwidth in increments as low as 8 Kb/s.
Rate limiting is provided based on source and destination IP address, source, and destination MAC address, Layer-4 TCP/UDP information, or any combination of these fields, using QoS ACLs (IP ACLs or MAC ACLs), class maps, and policy maps.

Application Visibility

The switch supports NetFlow Lite, which enables IT teams to understand the mix of traffic on their network and identify anomalies by capturing and recording specific packet flows. NetFlow Lite supports flexible sampling of the traffic, and exports flow data in the NetFlow Version 9 format for analysis on a wide range of Cisco and third-party collectors.
