The QoS Manager

 
  1. To extract CoS details from a set of network configuration files, close any currently open network baselines and select File > Import Data. Follow the instructions in Router Data Extraction Overview to import the configuration files after they have been uploaded to the IP/MPLSView server.

  2. Once the import is finished, the network baseline will be opened.

  3. Select Network > QoS... to open the QoS Manager window.

  4. Select Forwarding Class to see a list of CoS classes defined on the network. IP/MPLSView supports 8 classes. If there are more than 8 classes, the additional classes can be mapped to one of the 8 CoS aliases.

  5. Select “CoS Policy > by Policy Name” to see a summary list of the CoS policies in the network.

  6. The policies are organized by policy name or by node. You can select a policy under CoS Policy > by Policy Name to see the details for the policy, and the nodes which have the given policy, or select a node under CoS Policy > by Node to see the policies configured on a given node.

  7. Select Rate Limit Policy > by Policy Name to see a summary view of rate limiting policies in the network. Select a policy under Rate Limit Policy > by Policy Name to see the details for a given policy and the nodes which belong to the policy, or select a node under Rate Limit Policy > by Node to see the rate limiting policies configured on a given node.

How to Input CoS Parameters



To input CoS parameters, you can create CoS classes and policy maps and then specify classes that belong to a particular policy together with their bandwidths and queue sizes. Finally, you need to specify what policy is to be used for each interface.
