Switch will forward the frames without tampering the dscp or cos values - only when the QoS is not enabled on the switch.

If QoS is enabled on the switch (on the global config) then - these values could possibly change.


Hope this answers your query...

Also according to this link:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5023/products_tech_note09186a0080883f9e.shtml#concept11


"...While QoS is disabled, all frames/packets are passed-through the switch unaltered. For example, if a frame with CoS 5 and the packet inside the frame with DSCP EF enters the switch, the CoS and DSCP labels are not changed. The traffic leaves with the same CoS and DSCP values as it enters. All the traffic, which includes voice, are delivered on the best effort basis. "


Hope this helps...

Ranganath.

Thanks, according to yet another link


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750/software/release/12.2_35_se/configuration/guide/swqos.html#wp1021252


"When QoS is enabled with the mls qos global configuration command and all other QoS settings are at their  defaults, traffic is classified as best effort (the DSCP and CoS value  is set to 0) without any policing"


Does this mean that if traffic enters the switch marked with EF it will be re classified with DSCP 0?

Yes thats correct, traffic entering the switch marked with EF, it will get a DSCP value of 0 by the switch.
