Testin QOS

Is there anyway to test to see if QOS is running properly? -Other than contacting the end user and saying "Hey, how's the network?"

We are have MPLS and the ISP has configured QOS on their side. My side is listed below: --thx

class-map match-any APPS

match access-group 126

class-map match-any BGP

match access-group name BGP

policy-map ETMS

class APPS

set ip dscp af31

bandwidth remaining percent 100

class BGP

priority percent 5

class class-default



set ip dscp default


int s0/0/0

max-reserved-bandwidth 100

service-policy output ETMS

Re: Testin QOS

You could verify that packets arrive on the far side with the marking you expect. You can also use a traffic generator to load one or more classes and see if performance for other classes is as you expect. (NB: this can disturb production traffic.) BTW, when running across a cloud, such as MPLS, if you have asymmetrically bandwidth, you'll likely only be able to stress in one direction.

Re: Testin QOS

The sho policy-map command shows that the traffic is being classed but it's going through a MPLS system that I have no control of.
