A quick question: after issuing "auto qos voip cisco-phone" in an interface fa0/5 which is connected to a cisco phone, the DSCP value on Skinny packet from phone has been changed to the default value 0. when I stop the MLS QOS on switch, DSCP value on Skinny parcket back to default value CS3, same happened to the port connect to CUCM.
I know that by default the Cisco swith will not remark any packet, when packet go thought the it. Once QOS enabled, switch will remove all the existing mark on incoming parket and remark it with DSCP 0, theoretically on the port with "auto qos voip trust" command, it should trust the marking made by phone or cucm. but in my test with Wireshark, the value has been set to default. try on switch 3550 and 2960 same result, have I missed something here?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Where are you running wireshark?
Can you post up your config and note which ports your source traffic is coming from, and which port you are monitoring?
For example, if you are monitoring on fa 0/1, and have turned on QoS and set 'auto qos voip trust' on fa 0/1, then you will see traffic marked as 0, as the source port (any other port on the switch, or a downstream/upstream switch) doesn't have qos trust enabled. Traffic is remarked on ingress...
thanks for your reply.
this is ports detaisl on the switch:
FA0/3 --> link to IP Phone 7941
FA0/4 --> link to my PC port
this is command I did on the switchon Switch:
)# monitor session 1 sour inter fa0/3
)# monitor session 1 desti int fa0/4
I also tried on the port link to the CUCM server, I can see the traffics from both way, MGCP from gateway to CUCM and vice versa. disable MLS QOS on switch, DSCP value all there and one enable the MLS QOS, DSCP set to 0.... thanks in advance. Roy
Is it all packets that are being bleached to "DSCP 0" .?
If so make sure that CDP protocol is running as this is a MUST for Cisco AutoQos
Thanks for reply. Yes the dscp value on all packets have been reset to 0, CDP by default is enabled and I checked it again it is on. I thought this is very simple QOS test on a switch, but seem to me is not that simple, I run out of idea, any suggestion are welcomed.
thanks in advance.
So - it is normal for all packets to get marked to 0 if you simply 'turn on' qos by entering the mls qos command.
As packets enter the switch, they are marked to 0, unless that port is trusting the traffic (or remarking it, but that's another topic). This applies to all ports, edge or trunk. So:
Thanks for your reply. Sorry I didn't explain it very clear at orignal post. Actually I did have all those port trusted with command "auto qos viop trust" on port to CUCM or trunk and "auto qos voip cisco-phone" for the phone. I know the theory well, but when I try to test it, seem to me it not work.
OK! to make it simple, let me put it this way. I have switch 2960 with gi0/1 to CUCM and Gi0/3 to phone and Gi0/4 to my PC.
1, I have enabled the Auto qos on the switch by issue the following command on the port gi0/3 "auto qos voip cisco-phone", with this command, it will enable AUTO QOS which means it will add MLS QOS and other lines such cos-dscp mapping, srr-queue.... to the running-config.
2, now let's leave the gi0/1 alone, just focus on the gi0/3. I issue the following command to monitor the traffic to setup the Gi04 as destination and Gi0/3 as source port. on my Wireshark, I can see the Skinny/RTP traffic going to the CUCM but the DSCP has been set 0, if stop the MLS QOS, then the marking on Skinny/RTP parcket is back.
3, I also try to manually configure the QOS on the switch same result, signalling traffic set to 0.
This is someting bother me...
Hi Aaron, tred to add the 'mls qos trust dscp' on the interface, it worked. I can see all packet (boht direct) with the right dscp value. so seem to me that 'auto qos voip cisco-phone' is not enough. Thanks...
