Configuring MQC Support for IP Sessions

Configuring MQC Support for IP Sessions

The MQC Support for IP Sessions feature provides modular quality of service (QoS) command-line interface (CLI) provisioning on Cisco Intelligent Services Gateway (ISG) IP sessions. It makes the full set of modular QoS CLI (MQC) syntax available for the sessions, whether they are configured locally or downloaded from a remote authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) server.

For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Restrictions for MQC Support for IP Sessions

General Restrictions

  • Creation of IP sessions over PPP sessions is not supported.

    Note


    This document uses the generic term PPP to cover all protocol types. Examples of protocols include PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) and PPP over ATM (PPPoA).
  • Only the marking and policing features work in upstream traffic. All queuing, policing, and marking MQC features work in downstream traffic.
  • Class-level queues are allowed only at the child level in session policy maps. All other levels must have a single-level policy and use the default queues.
  • Because IP sessions cannot be load-balanced, load balancing is not supported on any system.

Note


Restrictions that are applicable to PPPoGEC with per-session QoS are also applicable to IPoGEC with per-session QoS. For more information, see PPPoGEC: Per Session QoS chapter of the QoS Modular QoS Command-Line Interface Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Release 3S (Cisco ASR 1000).

Information About MQC Support for IP Sessions

ISG Policers

You can create configurations to work on an IP session with multiple traffic classes, and with one or more of the traffic classes acting as a policer. ISG policer is retained for backward compatibility and is fully supported if you do not want to migrate to MQC now. Note that ISG policing is supported on traffic classes, but MQC is not supported for traffic classes.

An ISG session can be configured with the ISG policer (also called dynamic rate limiting) or MQC, but not both. You should either use the ISG policer or migrate fully to MQC. If you do not migrate fully from ISG policer to MQC, a misconfiguration will occur.

Precedence Order in Policy Maps

A policy map can be attached to one or more interfaces to specify a service policy. Configuration sources combined with context determines which QoS policy map is applied. The three configuration sources and their general order of precedence are as follows:

  1. Per-user (per-subscriber) configuration
  2. Service profile
  3. Interface configuration

This order of precedence shows the general condition, that is, service profiles and per-user configurations have higher priority than interface configurations.

However, a change of authorization (CoA) per-user push replaces the current per-user configuration for any overlapping or common feature. Similarly, when a new service logs in, its configuration replaces any overlapping feature, from previously configured service profiles, that is not already in effect from a per-user configuration source

If the new service then logs off, the previously existing configuration is reapplied if no higher-precedence configuration source is in effect.

Given those precedence qualifications, the policy map is determined as follows:

  • If there is no policy map on the session, the incoming policy map is not applied.
  • If an existing policy map is configured from a higher priority source than an incoming one, the incoming policy map is not applied.
  • If an existing policy map is configured from a lower priority source than an incoming one, the incoming policy map replaces it.

How to Configure MQC Support for IP Sessions

Configuring Local Subscriber Profile for MQC Support

To configure a QoS policy map to define a service policy, perform the following steps.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    policy-map type service service-name

    4.    service-policy policy-name


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Router> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Router# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 policy-map type service service-name


    Example:
    Router# (config)# policy-map type service service1
     

    Enters policy-map configuration mode. Specifies the policy-map name and its service configuration.

     
    Step 4 service-policy policy-name


    Example:
    Router# (config-service-policymap)# service-policy service-policy1
     

    Configures the service policy.

     
    What to Do Next

    For information about configuring a local service profile, see the section “Configuring Per-Session QoS Using the ISG Framework�? in the "Configuring ISG Control Policies" chapter in the Intelligent Services Gateway Configuration Guide.

    Configuring ISG QoS for IP Sessions

    To associate a previously configured traffic class with a policy map, perform these steps:

    SUMMARY STEPS

      1.    enable

      2.    configure terminal

      3.    policy-map type service service-name

      4.    class type traffic class-name


    DETAILED STEPS
       Command or ActionPurpose
      Step 1 enable


      Example:
      Router> enable
       

      Enables privileged EXEC mode.

      • Enter your password if prompted.
       
      Step 2 configure terminal


      Example:
      Router# configure terminal
       

      Enters global configuration mode.

       
      Step 3 policy-map type service service-name


      Example:
      Router# (config)# policy-map type service
       

      Enters policy-map configuration mode. Specifies the policy-map name and its service configuration.

       
      Step 4 class type traffic class-name


      Example:
      Router# (config-service-policymap)# class type traffic
       

      Associates a previously configured traffic class with the policy map.

       

      Configuration Examples for MQC Support for IP Sessions

      QoS Policy-Map Service Profile and Command Policy-Map Configurations Example

      The following example shows how to configure a QoS policy map, a service profile, and a command policy map. The command policy map is then configured onto interface GigabitEthernet 0/0/0 with the service-policy keyword.

      Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
      Router(config)# class-map match-any EF-customer
      Router(config-cmap)# match access-group name CUSTOMER-EF
