Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

Greetings, i have an 2801 router terminating an SDSL connection, i have configured both class maps and a policy map for voice traffic and applied it to the dialer interface, however when i do a "sh policy-map int output" it shows that voice packets are being matched but not queued.

Config and output attatched, would anyone be able to shed any light on why this is happening?

Regards

Re: Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

Hi Mark,

Packets are unlikely to queued if the link is not experiencing any form of congestion. Perhaps you could also try reducing the load-interval under dialer interface to 30 (for testing) seconds and post the results of show policy-map interface command.

Re: Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

As Lejoe notes, you only see queued packet stats if the class packets actually queue. You class stats do show the packets matching the class criteria.

One possible reason for this, if your physical interface is Ethernet (and it appears to be) and your SDSL offers much less bandwidth, traffic might be unable to hit interface port speed. What you want to do is define a hierarchal policy which shapes the bandwidth to correspond with your SDSL's actual provided egress bandwidth.

Re: Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

Cheers for the replies guys, The only thing that concerns me is that no packets have been matched over the last week, and im confident that the link has been fully utilised during this period.

Queueing

Strict Priority

Output Queue: Conversation 264

Bandwidth 192 (kbps) Burst 4800 (Bytes)

(pkts matched/bytes matched) 0/0

(total drops/bytes drops) 0/0

I have altered the policy as below.

class-map match-any Voice-Media

match ip dscp ef

class-map match-any Voice-Signalling

match ip dscp cs3

match ip dscp af31

!

policy-map SDSL-WAN-OUT

class Voice-Media

priority 192

class Voice-Signalling

bandwidth 8

class class-default

set ip dscp default

fair-queue

!

policy-map SHAPE-SDSL-WAN-OUT

class class-default

shape average 1000000

service-policy SDSL-WAN-OUT

!

interface Dialer 1

service-policy output SHAPE-SDSL-WAN-OUT

!

Do you think this would be sufficient?

Re: Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

Seems like packets are not marked, you may want to check with an analyzer if indeed they are.

Re: Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

Hi,

Seems good to me, try also reducing the load-interval to 30 (for testing) under the dialer interface and then take a look at the show policy-map int command.

Appologies i meant under the "Queueing" section.

Re: Traffic not showing as Queued under DSL policy-map

As said in earlier posts, if the pkts matched/bytes matched are non zero only when the class experienced coongestion

Have a look at the foll link

Yes, and as both I and Narayan have mentioned, you shouldn't see any count there unless there's enough interface congestion to cause packets to queue.

Thank you all for your time, it's cleared up any concerns i was having.
