QoS default class with a bandwidth statement or not?

Unanswered Question
Apr 30th, 2012

I'm putting together a 5-class QoS config for prioritizing Telepresence and VoIP to be configured on gig-ethernet interfaces in an ASR1001 WAN router.  My question has to do with whether or not to use a bandwidth statement in the class class-default.  From what I understand, class-default will use what ever bandwidth is remaining after the other classes.  Is that correct?


The classes in the QoS config are as follows with two version of class-default:


Voice = 50mb

Telepresence = 50mb

Signaling = 5mb

Network control = 5mb

Class-default = remaining (or 800mb)


1. - without bandwidth statement in class-default

policy-map DataCenter_and_Triangle_Gigabit_5class

   class Voice_Avaya

       priority 50000

   class Telepresence

       priority 50000

   class Signaling

       bandwidth 5000

   class Network

       bandwidth 1000

   class class-default

       fair-queue

          random-detect


2. - with bandwidth statement in class-default

policy-map DataCenter_and_Triangle_Gigabit_5class

   class Voice_Avay

      priority 50000

   class Telepresence

      priority 50000

   class Signaling

      bandwidth 5000

   class Network

      bandwidth 1000

   class class-default

      bandwidth 800000

      fair-queue

      random-detect


What would be the better way to configure class-default?

Please follow as shown below.


class class-default

   bandwidth remaining

     random-detect


FYI...

priority queue has strict policing.


Hope this answers your questions.
