QoS quality of service on MetroEthernet links

Good Afternoon,

I have the following problem,

I have a vlan configured on a border router that connects different branches,

the problem is that it is the same vlan for all branches and edge router.

I seek to apply QoS to ensure voice ip, I know how to set it at branches but in the edge router is not as guarantee bandwidth for each branch if they are in the same vlan or subinterface.

It is a kind of hub and spoke about MetroEthernet links

please I need your help

thank you very much I look forward to your prompt response.

Yes, that's a common problem with MAN/WAN clouds.

What you might do is determine if your MetroE vendor provides any kind of QoS support, and if they do, then determine if it's sufficient for your needs.  If so, use it.  (NB: sometimes this is an extra cost feature.)

If your MetroE vendor doesn't support any QoS, or their support is insufficient, providing effective QoS because complicated and/or expensive, very quickly.  Often you might try to defer the need for QoS by obtaining more bandwidth.

thank you sir joseph,

we investigate some solution we find the following.

gre tunnel in metroethenert links with the same vlan

the tunnel ensures a point to point between the branches and the edge router.
QoS is applied to the tunnel and the policy map is effective and there is no drop on the link or the tunnel.

Annex configuration.

I hope your answer thanks.

Yes, tunnels might be used, and it some respects it might simplify your QoS, but it doesn't avoid all congestion management problems, and tunnels can lead to packet fragmentation.

For example, if you're running (logically) a pure hub and spoke, your tunnels can be shaped to avoid over running any one branch, but can the aggregate of all your tunnels egress exceed the hubs physical bandwidth?  Or, can the aggregate of all your branch tunnels egress exceed the physical ingress capacity of the hub interface?

More about optimizing tunnels can be found here: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/ip/generic-routing-encapsulation-gre/25885-pmtud-ipfrag.html

BTW, most Cisco shapers (I believe) don't account for L2 overhead, so you need to adjust them slower then the nominal bandwidth.

ok thanks for the recommendation take this into account.

another question friend

there any way to watch the traffic crossing in a gre tunnel  or DMVPN  through netwflow ??

Not sure.

Can you enable Netflow on a tunnel interface?  If so, I would guess it should become part of Netflow stats.
