Before you look at platform

Before you look at platform specific issues or techniques, you need to take a much more global look at what you are trying to accomplish.

this is a pretty good starting point:

Thanks. I did review it.

Thanks. I did review it.

can you advise where can i find platform specific best best practice CVD for QoS?

I do not know of any platform

I do not know of any platform specific best practice documents. Most of what i have used in the past is directed at QOS end to end and tends to be platform/operating system agnostic.

here is a link to the QOS doc wiki, another "overview" source.

Thanks. What's best practice

Cisco does have QoS SRNDs, that show recommended configuration for different device types.  E.g., http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/solutions/Enterprise/WAN_and_MAN/QoS_SRND_40/QoSCampus_40.html

However, I wouldn't recommend following Cisco's QoS design guides, blindly.  Further, I believe Cisco's QoS design guide assumes you're using Cisco VoIP phones, which support CDP.  In principle, you'll treat traffic to/from your Avaya VoIP phones the same as if they were Cisco VoIP phones, buy the Avaya phones cannot trigger policies Cisco devices as can Cisco VoIP phones.

BTW, Cisco's QoS doesn't currently conform to RFC QoS, although its close.

At to best practice, QoS, "by the book", would be end-to-end, but you only really need (or just initially configure) QoS at congested interfaces where the congestion is adverse to your traffic needs and can actually be mitigated by QoS.

Thanks very much for detailed

Thanks very much for detailed info.

on ports where phones connect, should i put "auto qos trust cos" or "auto qos trust cos"?

I recall (?) those commands require CDP capable VoIP phones.  Additionally, I recommend basing QoS on ToS (L3) tags rather than CoS (L2) tags.

Beginner

Thanks. Avaya phones don't

Thanks. Avaya phones don't support cdp, they do lldp i think. so would "auto qos trust cos" or "auto qos trust cos" do the job? which command to use?

Yes, I  believe, Avayas don't support CDP, but they do support LLDP.  Only later Cisco devices support LLDP, but those that do, I don't recall (?) Cisco supporting features like "auto QoS", using it.

Beginner

Thanks. would "auto qos trust

Thanks. would "auto qos trust dscp" trust dscp value coming from Avaya phone?

Again, I don't believe (any) "auto QoS . . . " will work with Avaya.

What you place on the port, depends on the device.  Older Cisco switches will pass QoS markings if QoS not globally enabled.  If QoS globally enabled, you need to trust the marking (or have an ingress policy that does).  Recent Cisco switches now work like Cisco routers, they pass QoS markings.
