About the Security Device Manager
The Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) provides an intuitive, graphical user interface for configuring and monitoring advanced IP-based QoS functionality within Cisco routers, and is used to ease QoS configuration and monitoring for a single device.
Additionally, the Cisco SDM provides integrated management of Cisco IOS features like wide-area network (WAN) access, dynamic routing, IPSec virtual private networks (VPNs), firewalls, and intrusion prevention.
