I was looking into a clients network to figure out why their MPLS link to remote site was slow, yet showed no signs of over utilization.
On the local side mpls router they have a policy map defined with 2 classes; critical and class-default. The critical class has a priority of 75%. On the remote site mpls router they have the same class set to 1100kb. Keep in mind this sites interface where this policy is defined is ethernet, and the local side where the percentage 75 is set is gigabit.
Will this mismatch cause latency and the behavior we are seeing? We have 6Mb MPLS connections between these sites.
