schedulers and schedulers-map is to schdule traffic egress.
The scheduler decides how much bandwidth a forwarding class gets.
Ingress forwarding class is decided and also a drop priority ion case
the traffic needs to be dropped.
In the scheduler within a forwarding class different drop-priorities can
be treated different through applying different drop profiles.
When it comes to voice, it should have it's own forwarding class of a
high priority. It should not be using different drop priorities and
different drop profiles. It should have one that says: drop everything
if you need to queue. Because voice traffic dont like to be queued and
sent later. It will mess the sound up. In return voice traffic should
have the highest priority and whatever bandwidth it need to push any
other traffic away.
