cos and DSCP on a switch .. both need to be used ?

Hi,

I am begining to work to apply Qos on switchs (C2960 & C6500), and I still have a doubt about the necessity to consider the cos value. I indeed want to apply Qos for ToIP, Video, perhaps create a scavenger class, ans in all cases, I classify my packets with TCP/UDPB port and mark them with DSCP. So is it really necessary to study all the DSCP/CoS mapping problematics ? Is it not possible to make the configurations only on the base of the DSCP field?

Thanks by advance for your help.

D.

yes you do, as the last time I looked at QoS. A 6500, it only supports CoS so you need to understand the mapping tables for the relative queuing options.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your answer. You're (unfortunatelly) right. The exception seems to be 6708-10GE cards which are able to map cos or DSCP.

Hoping Cisco is going to ease the Qos implementation in the future! ;-)
