Priority queue over ADSL

Hello I have a 3 site VPN over PIXes with a 1721 ADSL router at the main site. I want to prioritise the outgoing VPN traffic over the ordinary internet traffic. I applied a priority list to the dialer but it has no effect on the ATM interface on the router, which is dropping packets.

If I then apply the priority-list to the ATM0 interface, it accepts it but it does not show up in the config and still shows no queuing on that interface.

interface ATM0

no ip address

no atm ilmi-keepalive

Re: Priority queue over ADSL

Since the ATM interface is part of dialer pool, I think you will not be allowed to change the queuing on the physical interface. Since you have applied the priority-list to the dialer, you should be looking at the output of 'show int dialer2' which does not show any drops for either of the 4 queues. You can try clearing the counters of the ATM interface and check whether drops are still happening.

Re: Priority queue over ADSL

Forgot I sent this but I still haven't solved this...

Anyway, the problem IS at the physical interface. The dialer shows no drops because the priority queue is not doing anything for some reason I can't figure out.

The drops ARE the problem. I need to know a strategy for applying QoS to an ADSL interface - any way will do.

Thanks,

Re: Priority queue over ADSL

Hi,

We seem to have struck the same issue. The ATM interface only supports FIFO.

According to the Cisco IOS documentation it should be possible to use CBWFQ in this case. Your IOS version must support this feature of course. It is configured as follows:

Router(config)#class-map class-ip

Router(config-cmap)#match protocol ip

Router(config)#class-map class-ipx

Router(config-cmap)#match protocol ipx

Router(config)#policy-map policy-cbwfq

Router(config-pmap)#class class-ip

Router(config-pmap-c)#bandwidth percent 40

Router(config-pmap)#class class-ipx

Router(config-pmap-c)#bandwidth 20

Router(config)#interface atm 0

Router(config-if)#service-policy output policy-cbwfq

The key issue is that you can use a system (IOS) queue behind/before the FIFO queue on the interface.

Try a search for wfq and atm for a doc that explains this matters. Title: Understanding WFQ on ATM.

Re: Priority queue over ADSL

Since this is Asymmetric DSL, you should first shape the traffic down to your upload speed. Maybe this document (or links within) can help you:
