QoS not dropping packets?

Jump to solution

Who can tell me what's wrong with the following? Here we have an Adtran NetVanta 3400 series, with a client needing to classify and prioritize voice traffic only.

Who can tell me why we have traffic classified & being matched but not dropped?

qos map VOIP 20
  match dscp 46
  match precedence 5
  priority percent 80
qos map VOIP 21
  match list aclVoIP21
  set dscp 26

interface ppp 1

  description XClient to ISP

  ip address  X.X.X.X  255.255.255.252

  ip access-policy Public

  media-gateway ip primary

  ppp multilink

  max-reserved-bandwidth 90

  qos-policy out UC1VOIP

  no shutdown

  cross-connect 1 t1 1/1 1 ppp 1

  cross-connect 2 t1 1/2 1 ppp 1

ip access-list extended aclVoIP21

  permit udp any  any eq 5060  

  permit tcp any  any eq 5060

Client1#sh qos map int ppp 1

ppp 1

  qos-policy out: VOIP

   map entry 20

     match IP packets with a DSCP value of 46

     match IP packets with a precedence value of 5

     priority bandwidth: 80 (% of total) 

     burst budget 61223/61425 bytes (current/max)

     packets matched: 7146021, bytes matched: 1445068601

     packets dropped: 0, bytes dropped: 0

     5 minute offered rate 101744 bits/sec, drop rate 0 bits/sec

   map entry 21

     match ACL aclVoIP21

     set DSCP value to 26

   map entry default

     packets matched: 59083412, bytes matched: 15950232115

     packets dropped: 0, bytes dropped: 0

     5 minute offered rate 1333784 bits/sec, drop rate 0 bits/sec

- Thanks for posting your question on the forum!

Based on your configuration, you have two QoS policies applied to the PPP interface. The first QoS map entry is matching packets with a DSCP value of 46 or IP precedence value of 5 and giving it a priority over 80% of the available bandwidth when the link is in a congested state. The second QoS map entry is matching traffic defined in the ACL "aclVoIP21" and setting the DSCP value of 26.

You will not see any dropped packets unless the PPP link is in a congested state. In other words, traffic that has a DSCP value of 46 or IP precedence value of 5 will be put in a low latency queue that is prioritized above all other user traffic. If no other traffic is present, the queue is allowed to burst up to the interface rate. Otherwise, priority traffic above the specified priority value will be dropped.

More information can be found in the following guide: Configuring QoS in AOS

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
