QOS is bottle mecking my MPLS

                   We have QOS over our MPLS and my provider says that our QOS policies are working fine, but when I run the

show policy-map interface command it always shows the EF que with 0 packets and using up 25% of our bandwidth.  We are not tagging anything in the EF que we do not run any time sensitive protocols(voip video) over the MPLS.  All I want to do is remove QOS entirely, but my provider is balking at the idea.  Why would I keep this policy that is wasting 25% of my bandwidth???

Hello Friend,

I hope you are doing good, very difficult question haa.

Friend we need to analyse the issue first, let us do it together.

Q) What if there is a necessity in future?

A) We must be prepared for the future We undertand it and when the time comes we may plan it and make an RFC and implement it. Till then dont waste your bandwidth unnecessarily.

Note: By your post I understood that you are not going to have such a requirement in the near future.

Q) What is the reason behind SP not willing to remove your policies?

A) Ask SP an find it out, if he is making some valid points that needs to be considered then we we must.

I hope you understood.

Hello Dan

FYI - you are not wasting any bandwidth- qos will only be applicable if congestion is occurring.

It looks like you have priority queuing set of EF.

Can you post the run config relating to the qos
