Hi,

when a packet will receive a port with cos 5 the port must trussed the QoS value. When not the cos value will reset to "0" and the packet forwarded without QoS benefit in a normal configurationt (cos mapping)

Carl,

As s.helmer mentioned it will overwrite/rewrite the TOS bits with a cos of 0. If you wish to keep the markings you can place "mls qos trust cos" on the trunk links.

HTH,

Re: QOS trusts

Hi there, thanks for that, surely the switch must have sme processor overhead for having to do this?

What happens about the DSCP values? do they remain intact?

Also can you confirm that when you have a cos to dscp mapping in a switch, if the switch sees either cos or dscp marking, would it change the other? ie if it sees cos 5 would it change the dcsp accordingly and vice versa ?

Re: QOS trusts

I'm not sure about the CPU I think it will take very much CPU.

Yes it depends on the settings. If you configure nothing all markings will reset/remark to "0"....
