QoS mark stripping

Hi

We are having trouble with our QoS setup:

We have two 4500 switches, A and B that are connected by a trunk link. The packet leaves Switch A with a mark of QoS 5 but the value returns to default after passing through the link. Why does this issue occur even though qos trust dscp is configured?

Thanks.

Re: QoS mark stripping

Hello Greg,

is the link between the two switches a trunk ?

I wonder if you should also trust cos

Hope to help

Hi Giuseppe,

Yes, the link is a trunk, a 100MB link provided by a telco. We were also wondering if we should trust cos. Is it safe to enable both the trust cos and trust dscp?

Thanks for the input.

As far as i know you have to choose between trust CoS and trust DSCP. But on a trunk link you should be trusting CoS not DSCP anyway.

You can then determine which DSCP value is used by the switch by using the CoS-to-DSCP map.

Ok Jon, we will try using trust COS instead. Oh, and is there a documentation showing that we should trust CoS on trunk links? This would be a great help also.

Thank you very much for the recommendation.

Best Regards.

Re: QoS mark stripping

QoS is enabled on both switches?

trust DSCP is configured at each end of the trunk?

Are you checking with an outbound and inbound policy map on the trunk interface to see for matches on QoS5

You have to check if it doesn't pass any untrusted interface because an unconfigured interface will remap it to 0 (if QoS is globally enabled)

Hi Davy,

Thanks for the thought.

Yes, trust DSCP is configured on both switches.

We sniffed the packet to check the QoS mark. As it passed through the link and enters the other switch, the mark goes back to default.

So far, it doesn't pass to any untrusted interfaces. The problem just occurs with this link. Any more thoughts on this matter?

Kind Regards.

Re: QoS mark stripping

Hello Greg,

I agree with Jon try to trust cos instead of trusting DSCP and kindly report if this makes any difference

Re: QoS mark stripping

Hi Giuseppe,

Yes, I agree with you two. We will try to use trust cos.

Thanks.
