3750X QoS Problems

I'm new to setting up QoS so I would like some input.

I'm setting up QoS on my 3750X:

Cisco IOS Software, C3750E Software (C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.2(2)E, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)

I enabled Auto QoS on the switch:

mls qos map policed-dscp  0 10 18 24 46 to 8
mls qos map cos-dscp 0 8 16 24 32 46 48 56
mls qos srr-queue input bandwidth 70 30
mls qos srr-queue input threshold 1 80 90
mls qos srr-queue input priority-queue 2 bandwidth 30
mls qos srr-queue input cos-map queue 1 threshold 2 3
mls qos srr-queue input cos-map queue 1 threshold 3 6 7
mls qos srr-queue input cos-map queue 2 threshold 1 4

mls qos queue-set output 1 threshold 3 100 100 100 3200
mls qos queue-set output 1 threshold 4 60 150 50 200
mls qos queue-set output 1 buffers 15 25 40 20
mls qos

auto qos srnd4

 

All ports are setup like this:

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1
 switchport mode access
 srr-queue bandwidth share 1 30 35 5
 priority-queue out
 mls qos trust dscp
 auto qos trust dscp

 

The problem is this:

I have an IPTV application that I tag with AF41 (DSCP 34):

policy-map QoS-Ceton-InfiniTV-Policy
 class QoS-Ceton-InfiniTV-Data-Class
  set dscp af41

But when I'm playing that application back on a client, packets are dropped when I'm also running Remote Desktop tagged with AF21 (DSCP 18).

Temporarily, I solved the problem by changing all ports to queue-set 2:
Queueset: 1
Queue     :       1       2       3       4
----------------------------------------------
buffers   :      15      25      40      20
threshold1:     100     125     100      60
threshold2:     100     125     100     150
reserved  :      50     100     100      50
maximum   :     200     400    3200     200
Queueset: 2
Queue     :       1       2       3       4
----------------------------------------------
buffers   :      25      25      25      25
threshold1:     100     200     100     100
threshold2:     100     200     100     100
reserved  :      50      50      50      50
maximum   :     400     400     400     400

 

What I don't get is Auto QoS is suppose to make this easy, isn't it?

How come AF41 packets are dropped for AF21 packets?

 

Thanks for any input.

Hi,  We need to check on

Hi,

 

Seems that the AF41 is mapped to queue 1 threshold 2 which on has 15% of the buffers while on queue-set 1. Since you moved the interfaces to queue set 2 and the issue was resolved is because queue-set 2 offers 25% buffers to queue 1, that said it may be a due to the buffers allocation that you are seeing drops since AF21 is also mapped to the same queue.

 

Hope this helps.

Can you recommend how to change the configuration to better this situation?

Isn't priority-queue out suppose to address this issue?

This is 99.9% the way Auto-QoS set the switch up.

Only thing I changed was: mls qos queue-set output 1 threshold 3 100 100 100 3200, because I saw it on this forum.

Is setting the ports to queue-set 2 good enough?

 

Thanks!

Hi, Based on the output you

Hi,

 

Based on the output you attached AF41 is actually mapped to queue 1 threshold 3 and AF21 mapped to queue 2 threshold 1, so they should not interfere between each other. 

AF41 has 40% of the buffers while AF21 15%, now when you see the drops did you confirm on the mls qos interface xx statistics that the queue 1 threshold 3 drop counters were increasing?

Even with queue-set 2, I still see drops, just not as many.

HI,  I see that the drops

HI, 

 

I see that the drops happened on queue 3 threshold 3 which is only mapped for data traffic, not AF41 nor AF21. See below:

Interesting.I will change

Interesting.

I will change back to queue-set 1 and recheck the counts.

I don't know whats wrong.

The IPTV application drops packets when I push a lot of data via RDP.
