max-reserved-bandwidth ignored when shaping??

We have a bandwidth management policy to prioritise traffic types across Sat links as follows:

class-map match-all VOIP

match access-groupname VOIP

class-map match-all MAIL

match access-groupname MAIL

class-map match-all VTC

match access-groupname VTC

class-map match-all FILESHARE

match access-groupname FILESHARE

class-map match-all WEB

match access-groupname WEB

policy-map QOS

class VTC

  priority 256

class VOIP

  priority 128

class WEB

  bandwidth remaining percent 45

class MAIL

  bandwidth remaining percent 30

class FILESHARE

  bandwidth remaining percent 25

policy-map 2048

class class-default

  shape average 2048000

  service-policy QOS

policy-map 1024

class class-default

  shape average 1024000

  service-policy QOS

We were expecting to see 25% bandwidth reserved by default for routing traffic as per max-reserved-bandwidth default. However as we are shaping the default reserved for the class-default under the policy-map QOS is being ignored. My question is, how is the routing traffic guaranteed if the class-default became flooded with traffic? Is the only option available to create the class-default and allocate it a bandwidth within the policy-map QOS, or are there other options open. I have noted this appears to be the future solution when the max-reserved-bandwidth is fully deprecated under IOS 15. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The QoS features were enhanced (significantly) with HQF (12.4.20T).  Define a class-default under your QoS policy and define its bandwidth.

You can also explicitly define a class and policy for routing protocols and allocate bandwidth.

Routing protocols use CS6.

Thanks Edison,

     I can see that will work, however even without matching the CS6 traffic and allowing it to fall into class-default the CS6 traffic appears to get through when flooding with BE traffic through the class-default. Does the CS6 traffic still get treated with priority over BE traffic within the undefined class-default?

Depends on whether class-default is using FIFO or FQ and whether FQ is just FQ or WFQ.  The latter, WFQ, will give IPPrec 6 (including CS6) packets a scheduling boost.  (NB: HQF uses FQ.  I think pre-HQF, undefined class-default uses WFQ.)
