I've got an issue with a new Catalyst 9300 deployment for a customer. We've moved routing from a dedicated router to the 9300 and the 9300 has taken the QoS for the site. We're using standard Auto QoS, trusting DSCP, but I'm seeing significant output drops on the WAN bound interface. Can anyone help shed some light on to what is going on? The stats don't seem to add up correctly on the port-map. The WAN providers interface is nailed to 100/Full and the Auto QoS is set to run in percentages of the interface and has dutifully set it's figures to a 100 Mbps reference bandwidth. I've upgraded the switches from 16.09.01 to 16.12.01, but that didn't clear the problem. I can't quite understand from the show policy-map what the drops in the priority-queue 1 are from, as it doesn't seem to be matching anything and there's no traffic on the site marked that should hit the priority-queue.
Here is a show interface:-
