Dear All,


I configured QoS for remote branches the bandwidth link is 256 so i need to configure frame relay fragmentation but when i configure it under the sub interface the router hang and to solve the problem i should delete the fragmentation to access the router from the same session and CPU was raising to 50%. my question is have i configure the fragmentation at the both sides on one only?


BR,

Hi,


If you have sensitive application such as VOIP, then I recommend to have FRF on both sides implemented , this should have affect on the serialization delay.


Frame-relay fragmentation decreases the delay over the WAN link, however , you shouldnt notice hanging other than higher delay on the opposite direction of the WAN.

Hi Mohamed



     the other side link speed is 2 M so i think i dont need fragmentation. but my main issue is the router hanging i notice also than the number of frame with unexpected b bit is very high do you have what this is meaning?


Thanks,

Hi Mohamed,


Thats a bad sign.


If the B bit is increasing , then it means the Number of fragments received by this DLCI that have an unexpected B bit set. When this occurs, all fragments being reassembled are dropped and a new frame is begun with this fragment



So the fragmented packets are dropped and it could be causing high delay and application interrupt.



Please post your current FRF config
