QoS on Catalyst 6500

Hello All,

got a question regarding classification/colouring on a Cat 6500 with IOS 12.1.13 (E9):

We get the output: (all classes dscp 0)

H1C#sh mls qos ip fa 3/11

[In] Policy map is COS-Test [Out] Default.

QoS Summary [IP]: (* - shared aggregates, Mod - switch module, F - install error)

Int Mod Dir Cl-map DSCP AgId Trust FlId AgForward-Pk AgPoliced-Pk

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fa3/11 1 I GOLD 0 0* No 0 1060798 0

Fa3/11 1 I SILVER 0 0* No 0 1060798 0

Fa3/11 1 I BRONZE 0 0* No 0 1060798 0

Fa3/11 1 I PLATINUM 0 0* No 0 1060798 0

Any mistakes ? Any hints ?

Re: QoS on Catalyst 6500

Try placing the service policy on the VLAN interface to which port fa3/11 belongs.

Re: QoS on Catalyst 6500

Hello,

finally we could identify the cause of the problem:

15:08:14: %QM-4-TCAM_ENTRY: Hardware TCAM entry capacity exceeded

Which is a pretty weired behaviour, because 5 access-lists do not fill up TCAM.

Currently we are investigating if it is a problem of just that test-box or a general one.

We could make it work with just one class either on a VLAN interface or on a physical one - both worked.

The VLAN int is tricky because only the initial flow-setup is routed, subsequent traffic flows are switched directly and do not pass the VLAN interface anymore ...

Many Thanks, Wolfgang

Re: QoS on Catalyst 6500

Shouldn't be a problem with applying it to the VLAN int. Even though the flows are 'switched directly', any policies applied to the initial packet is still applied to the subsequent packets, including your policy map (or any other policies for that matter).

Re: QoS on Catalyst 6500

Hello,

unfortunately I can not confirm this:

Colouring on the VLAN int ended up with no result,

(only very little hits on the access-list which identifies VLAN sourced traffic)

The same service-policy applied to a physical int worked fine ...

Re: QoS on Catalyst 6500

This would seem to indicate that most of the traffic is contained within the same VLAN, not routed. In this case, you are correct in saying that the service policy has to be applied to the physical interface, not the VLAN interface.

Is this a correct assumption?
