PPPoGEC Per Session QoS

PPPoGEC Per Session QoS

The PPPoGEC Per Session QoS feature supports the configuration of specific QoS policies on PPPoE sessions on the PPP Termination and Aggregation (PTA), L2TP Access Concentrator (LAC), or L2TP Network Server (LNS) devices in a PPPoE /L2TP environment (broadband deployments). PPPoE sessions with Etherchannel Active/Standby functionality is also supported on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers acting as PTA, LAC, or LNS devices in a PPPoE/L2TP environment.

Information About PPPoGEC Per Session QoS

Restrictions for PPPoGEC Per Session QoS

  • QoS policy maps cannot be configured on member links, a port-channel main interface, or a port-channel subinterface that is associated with the transmit path for PPPoE sessions with QoS.

PPPoGEC Sessions with Active/Standby Etherchannel

PPPoE sessions with active/standby Etherchannel support one-level or two-level hierarchical output policy maps (with queueing settings) also support flat input policy maps (without queueing settings). The policy maps are configured using previously defined class maps. The traffic classes must be configured using the class-map command.

The output hierarchical policy map and the input policy map can be associated with the PPPoE sessions in one of the following ways:
  • Configuration settings on a virtual template interface

  • Dynamic configuration settings via external tools configured in the authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) model (for example, a radius server). For more information, see the Intelligent Services Gateway Configuration Guide and the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Software Configuration Guide.

The port-channel main interface must contain the following commands that create an active/standby scenario. Such a configuration will allow only a single interface to be active and forwarding traffic at any time.

  • interface port-channel1

  • lacp fast-switchover

  • lacp max-bundle 1

How to Configure PPPoGEC Per Session QoS

Configuring QoS on PPPoE Sessions with Etherchannel Active/Standby

To configure QoS on PPPoE sessions, you must specify the virtual template to use for PPP sessions on the Etherchannel interface, specify the name of the service policy that is applied to input traffic, and specify the output traffic. This configuration shows how to associate the output hierarchical policy map and the input policy map with the PPPoE sessions by defining a virtual template interface.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    interface virtual-template number

    4.    service-policy output policy-map-name

    5.    service-policy input policy-map-name

    6.    end


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.

     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 interface virtual-template number


    Example:
    Device(config)# interface virtual-template 99
     

    Creates a virtual template interface that can be configured and applied dynamically in creating virtual access interfaces, and enters interface configuration mode.

    • Specify the virtual template to use for PPP sessions on the Etherchannel interface.

     
    Step 4 service-policy output policy-map-name


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# service-policy output session_parent
    
     

    Specifies the name of the service policy that is applied to output traffic.

     
    Step 5 service-policy input policy-map-name


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# service-policy input session_ingress
    
     

    Specifies the name of the service policy that is applied to input traffic.

     
    Step 6 end


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# end
     

    Exits interface configuration mode and returns to privileged EXEC mode.

     

    Configuration Examples for PPPoGEC Per Session QoS

    Example: QoS on PPPoE Sessions with Etherchannel Active/Standby

    The following example shows the session_parent hierarchical policy map and the session_ingress policy map. These policy maps are attached to a virtual template interface using the service-policy command.

    PPPoGEC: Per Session QoS

    Cisco IOS XE Release 3.7S

    This feature supports the configuration of specific QoS policies on PPPoE sessions on the PTA, LAC, and LNS for broadband deployments.

    This feature was introduced on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

    In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.8S, support was added for per-session QoS in 1:1 mode for PPPoGEC. Also, support for Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and IP over PPPoE was also added for PPPoGEC.

    In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.9S, support was added for IP session over GEC in 1:1 mode.
