QoS - Clarification

Unanswered Question

L2 switchport is trust the device. Then, will L2 switch use the dscp value to classify the traffic or the cos value ?

I have this problem too.

Hi

You set the switchports (depending on hardware and software versions) like so:

mls qos trust dscp (to use DSCP to classify)

mls qos trust cos (to trust CoS)

If you have the port set up to conditionally trust the cisco-phone, then it uses CoS and can optionally instruct the phone to mark down PC-port traffic.

L2 switchports won't look at DSCP values since DSCP is a L3 header. CoS tags are only carried through on trunk links. L3 switchports won't trust DSCP, and you need to trust it with the 'mls qos trust' commands recommended above.
