New to QOS - How is offered rate decided?

I am working with QoS and came across what I feel is an inconsitency. The following configurations are in place from a QoS perspective.  If I have a 50mb WAN link (which is correctly negotiating) why would my offered rate be so low? I feel that this is not allowing me to take full advantage of a 50mb link, but I could be wrong. Also, am I write to put backup traffic under af11? Any help&info, or links to reading material would be extremely helpful.

There could be many reasons why your offered rate is so low.  Much depends on the nature of what the hosts are attempting to do.  It could be somewhere along the path there are a lot of errors or a bottleneck adverse to transfers.  It could be WAN latency is slowing the effective rate.

AF11 is recommended for "bulk" traffic, so backup traffic might be marked as such, but if you also had large file transfers, you could mark them AF11 and perhaps use AF12 or AF13 for backups.

Regarding references, unfortunately there are so many, you need to be precise in what you're trying to learn.  For example, you might search on AF11, QoS, "bulk"; you might also search on BDP (bandwidth delay product).  Cisco has much good information, so you might first try searching just Cisco's site and then extend search to the rest of the Internet.

Would something like this be suiting to marking with AF13 for backup traffic?

class-map match-all ds_af13

match access-group name qos_class4_traffic

policy-map ds_marker

class ds_af13

  set ip dscp af13

ip access-list extended qos_class4_traffic

remark network backups

permit ip any host x.x.x.x
