port QOS - looking for a good doc

Unanswered Question
Aug 13th, 2007


I'm looking for a good whitepaper or "how to" on the different port queueing mechanisms, 1p2q2t-type-info, an overview of the feature and configuration, for the different types of linecards.

I've looked at ciscopress, and ... nothing.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?



I have this problem too.

Is there a particular switch you are interested in or is this for all switches.

"End to End QOS" covers all the present catalyst switches and their capabilities but with something like the 6500 switch you often have to look at the individual module data sheets for more information.

Could you elaborate on what type of switch(es) you are interested in ?

Thanks, I see the book on cisco press. Do you think that 2004 is appropriate... not too many basic changes since then?

Thanks Lisa G

It is a good start and it does not waste too much time explaining the basics of QOS as it is far more concerned with implementation details on Cisco devices. It has separate chapters for 3550/3560/3750, 4500 and 6500 switches and a lot of the information is as relevant today as it was in 2004.

One thing to note though is that the book cannot cover every type of module and queueing system for the 4500 and especially the 6500 so it does refer you to some of the specific docs on Cisco site for these.
