Similarities in QoS when working in L2 and L3

Hi

We have several 2960,3550 and 3560 in our network all working as L3 switches with the organisation QoS policy.

We are planing to move to a L2 network and I think that we have covered all of the topics with one exeption the QoS. Can anyone tell me can I expect the same QoS feature set and same level of QoS working with the switch as L2 switch instead of L3 switch?

Again I fully understand the other aspects of the change

Thanks

Adi

Usually, the biggest issue with switches that support QoS for L3 ToS is the loss of "granularity" when using L2 CoS, i.e. 64 possible markings vs. 8 possible markings.
