how to test QoS?

Unanswered Question
Jan 4th, 2010

Is there any solution to test that an implemented QoS (priority,..) works fine after configuration?

For example: my boss want to see if the QoS implemented in my border router works fine. But he don't know how to read packet sniffer like wireshark, Ethereal.

Best regards

I have this problem too.

In addition to Marwan's excellent link, it depends what you mean by testing.

If you want to show your boss that packets are being marked etc. then the doc has commands to show you that. But the real test of QOS is whether or not you are getting the service you expected for the different types of traffic you are marking. Is there some issue with the speed/throughput of your traffic ?
