ASA 5510 QoS configuration

Unanswered Question
Jun 12th, 2009

Hi forum,

We have some users who use citrix outside corporate network through citrix web interface.

These users are high priority users and we want to prioritize the citrix traffic.

I want to make sure that my configuration will fullfill our requirements. Below is the configuration i was thinking to implement.:

ASA(config)# priority-queue outside

ASA(config-priority-queue)# exit

ASA(config)#access-list CTX-QoS extended permit tcp any eq https

ASA(config)# class-map CTX-QoS-CMAP

ASA(config-cmap)# match dscp ef

ASA(config-cmap)# match access-list CTX-QoS

ASA(config-cmap)# exit

ASA(config)# policy-map CTX-QoS-PolicyMap

ASA(config-pmap)# class CTX-QoS-CMAP

ASA(config-pmap-c)# priority

ASA(config-pmap-c)# exit

ASA(config)# service-policy CTX-QoS-PolicyMap interface outside

Will this do the job?

Thanks in advance.

You must enable priority queues on the physical interface. (VLANs do not suport priority queuing)

And it's recomended that you limit the "not so important" traffic, please refer to my post:

thanks for your reply.

I believe that on Cisco ASA you enable it on the VLAN interface.

Otherwise - will the exampled configuration fullfill our needs regarding prioritizing the citrix traffic?

Thansk in advance.

Hi Mohammad,

Sorry for crashing into the thread. May I know how was your implementation with this?

Im actually planning to implement the same. Prioritize Citrix Traffic.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
