DLSw QoS, LLQ or PQ!?

I know that LLQ is designed primarely for voice, but can one use LLQ instead of PQ to priorotize SNA DLSw traffic?

What is the most prefered queueing method for SNA traffic?!

Thanks much


Re: DLSw QoS, LLQ or PQ!?

Stictly speaking, you could probably use LLQ to prioritise any traffic that you could uniquely identify via an access list. For DLSW this would be TCP port 2065.

However the recommended method of prioritising SNA traffic is either priority queuing, if DLSW is to have absolute priority, or custom queuing to distribute the bandwidth more fairly and prvent DLSW from totally monopolising the link.

Re: DLSw QoS, LLQ or PQ!?

I have a similar requirement to prioritise DLSw traffic. The opotion I have taken is to include the priority key on the dlsw remote-peer line in the config. Is this giving absolute priority to the DLSw traffic? As we also use telnet for access to a central AS400, I don't want DLSw to swamp the telnet access.
