Cisco QoS question

I am running Cisco QoS baseline on our WAN routers. I would like to know if there is a way to classify and prioritize traffic from\to two particular nodes that need to run some sort of data shadowing across the WAN. I have captured traffic from these nodes and it looks like they are putting traffic on the wire as DSCP=CS1. When traffic is light on the WAN links I don't think there is a problem, however, once bandwidth starts to getting to about 50% utilization the shadowing process between these two nodes starts to crawl ( The WAN connection is 12 Mbps between these two sites) Any help would be greatly appreciated... below is the QoS configuration sample from one of our routers

class-map match-all str-video

match ip dscp cs4

class-map match-all network-mgt

match ip dscp cs2

class-map match-all int-video

match ip dscp af41

class-map match-all critical-data

match ip dscp 25

class-map match-any voice-signal

match ip dscp af31

match ip dscp cs3

class-map match-all transactional

match ip dscp af21

class-map match-all voice

match ip dscp ef

class-map match-all routing

match ip dscp cs6

class-map match-all scavenger

match ip dscp cs1

Yes. Create an acl, apply that to your class-map and then assign to a policy-map. Something like:

access-list 110 permit tcp eq 80

class-map WEB

match ip address 110

policy-map WEBTEST

class WEB

bandwidth percent 2

This is a rough guess and syntax may not be right. The above matches only for hosts in those subnets running on 80. You can do a whole range, all per port, etc. Pretty much whatever you can put in an acl can be matched on.

Thanks for the quick response!!! Now, there is an existing policy map applied to WAN interface (service-policy output mpls-qos) can I apply two policy maps to the same interface? or just add the new class to the existing policy map? Thanks again.

You'd add the class map to the existing policy map. You can also create a new policy map and then embed that policy map to the existing policy map, but you're limited to only one service policy on an interface per direction.

   According to this link I configure my CISCO OIOS (tm) C1700 Software (C1700-Y-M), Version 12.3(17a), router to filter HTML trafic. It works perfectly.

     Could you tell me how to configure it to not filter traffic for specific IP addresses ex. administrators and other privileged users in my network?

Thanks a lot....
