mls qos (global configuration mode)

To enable the quality of service (QoS) functionality globally, use the mls qos command in global configuration mode. To disable the QoS functionality globally, use the no form of this command.

12.2(14)SX

Support for this command was introduced on the Supervisor Engine 720.

12.2(17d)SXB

This command was implemented on the Supervisor Engine 2 and integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(17d)SXB.

12.2(33)SRA

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.


Usage Guidelines

If you enable QoS globally, QoS is enabled on all interfaces with the exception of the interfaces where you disabled QoS. If you disable QoS globally, all traffic is passed in QoS pass-through mode.

In port-queueing mode, Policy Feature Card (PFC) QoS (marking and policing) is disabled, and packet type of service (ToS) and class of service (CoS) are not changed by the PFC. All queueing on rcv and xmt is based on a QoS tag in the incoming packet, which is based on the incoming CoS.

For 802.1Q or Inter-Switch Link (ISL)-encapsulated port links, queueing is based on the packet 802.1Q or ISL CoS.

For the router main interfaces or access ports, queueing is based on the configured per-port CoS (the default CoS is 0).

This command enables or disables ternary content addressable memory (TCAM) QoS on all interfaces that are set in the OFF state.

Examples

This example shows how to enable QoS globally:

Router(config)# mls qos
Router(config)#

This example shows how to disable QoS globally on the Cisco 7600 series router:

Router(config)# no mls qos
Router(config)#

12.2(33)SRA

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.


Usage Guidelines

This command is deprecated on Cisco 7600 series routers that are configured with a Supervisor Engine 2.

Although the CLI allows you to configure PFC-based QoS on the WAN ports on the OC-12 ATM OSMs and on the WAN ports on the channelized OSMs, PFC-based QoS is not supported on the WAN ports on these OSMs.

If you disable QoS globally, it is also disabled on all interfaces.

This command enables or disables TCAM QoS (classification, marking, and policing) for the interface.

Examples

This example shows how to enable QoS on an interface:

Router(config-if)# mls qos

mls qos 10g-only

To enable quality of service (QoS) in 10g-only mode, in which only the supervisor engine's 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports are used, use the mls qos 10g-only command in global configuration mode. To allow the use of all uplink ports, including the 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports, use the no form of this command.

mls qos 10g-only

Modification

12.2(33)SXH

Support for this command was introduced on the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE.


Usage Guidelines

When you enter the mls qos 10g-only command, a supervisor engine with both 1-Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports reallocates the interface queue capacity to improve the performance of its 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. The reallocation is possible only in 10g-only mode, in which the supervisor engine's 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports are not used. In the normal mode, when all supervisor engine ports are active, the queue structure is 2q4t on receive and 1p3q4t on transmit. In 10g-only mode, the queue structure is 8q4t on receive and 1p7q4t on transmit.


Note To display detailed information about the queues, use the show queueing interface command.


When you switch between normal and 10g-only modes, any existing QoS configuration on the uplink ports is lost, and you must reconfigure QoS. In addition, service will be temporarily lost on the ports during the transition.

If you do not shut down the 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports before entering the mls qos 10g-only command, the mls qos 10g-only command shuts down the ports.

When you switch from 10g-only mode to normal mode, you must enter the no shutdown command on each of the 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports to resume QoS service on those ports.

In 10g-only mode, the 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports are visible, but they remain in an administratively down state.

Examples

The following example shows how to place the supervisor engine in the 10g-only mode:

Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# mls qos 10g-only

mls qos aggregate-policer name rate-bps [normal-burst-bytes [maximum-burst-bytes | pir peak-rate-bps | action-type action]]

no mls qos aggregate-policer name

Syntax Description

name

Name of the aggregate policer. See the "Usage Guidelines" section for naming conventions.

rate-bps

Maximum bits per second. Range is 32000 to 10000000000.

normal-burst-bytes

(Optional) Normal burst bytes. Range is 1000 to 31250000.

maximum-burst-bytes

(Optional) Keyword and argument that set the peak information rate (PIR). Range is 32000 to 10000000000. Default is equal to the normal (cir) rate.

action-type action

(Optional) Action type keyword. This command may include multiple action types and corresponding actions to set several actions simultaneously. Valid values are:

conform-actionKeyword that specifies the action to be taken when the rate is not exceeded. Valid actions are:

dropDrops the packet.

set-dscp-transmit valueSets the DSCP value and sends the packet. Valid entries are: 0 to 63 (differentiated code point value), af11 to af43 (match packets with specified AF DSCP), cs1 to cs7 (match packets with specified CS DSCP), default, or ef (match packets with the EF DSCP).

set-mpls-exp-imposition-transmit number—Sets experimental (exp) bits at the tag imposition. Valid range is 0 to 7.

set-prec-transmitRewrites packet precedence and sends the packet.

transmit—Transmits the packet. This is the default.

exceed-actionKeyword that specifies the action to be taken when QoS values are exceeded. Valid actions are:

dropDrops the packet. This is the default.

policed-dscp-transmit—Changes the DSCP value according to the policed-dscp map and sends the packet.

transmit—Transmits the packet.

violate-actionKeyword that specifies the action to be taken when QoS values are violated. Valid actions are:

dropDrops the packet.

policed-dscp-transmit—Changes the DSCP value according to the policed-dscp map and sends the packet.

12.2(17d)SXB

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(17d)SXB.

12.3

This command was implemented on the Cisco 6500 and Cisco 7600.

12.2(33)SRA

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.


Usage Guidelines

This policer can be shared by different policy map classes and on different interfaces. The Cisco 7600 series router supports up to 1023 aggregates and 1023 policing rules.

The mls qos aggregate-policer command allows you to configure an aggregate flow and a policing rule for that aggregate. When you enter the rate and burst parameters, the range for the average rate is 32 kbps to 10 Gbps (entered as 32000 and 10000000000) and the range for the burst size is 1 KB (entered as 1000) to 31.25 MB (entered as 31250000). Modifying an existing aggregate rate limit entry causes that entry to be modified in NVRAM and in the Cisco 7600 series router if that entry is currently being used.


Note Because of hardware granularity, the rate value is limited, so the burst that you configure may not be the value that is used.


Modifying an existing microflow or aggregate rate limit modifies that entry in NVRAM as well as in the Cisco 7600 series router if it is currently being used.

When you enter the aggregate policer name, follow these naming conventions:

Maximum of 31 characters and may include a-z, A-Z, 0-9, the dash character (-), the underscore character (_), and the period character (.).

Must start with an alphabetic character and must be unique across all ACLs of all types.

Case sensitive.

Cannot be a number.

Must not be a keyword; keywords to avoid are all, default-action, map, help, and editbuffer.

Aggregate policing works independently on each DFC-equipped switching module and independently on the PFC2, which supports any non-DFC-equipped switching modules. Aggregate policing does not combine flow statistics from different DFC-equipped switching modules. You can display aggregate policing statistics for each DFC-equipped switching module, PFC2, and any non-DFC-equipped switching modules that are supported by the PFC2 by entering the show mls qos aggregate policer command.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure a QoS aggregate policer to allow a maximum of 100000 bits per second with a normal burst byte size of 10000, to set DSCP to 48 when these rates are not exceeded, and to drop packets when these rates are exceeded:

Router(config)# mls qos aggregate-policer micro-one 100000 10000 conform-action 
set-dscp-transmit 48 exceed-action drop

Usage Guidelines

Cisco 3660, 3845, 6500, 7200, 7400, and 7500 Series Routers

You can assign the default CoS and differentiated services code point (DSCP) value to all packets entering a port if the port has been configured by use of the override keyword.

Use the override keyword when all incoming packets on certain ports deserve a higher or lower priority than packets the enter from other ports. Even if a port was previously set to trust DSCP or CoS, this command overrides that trust state, and all the CoS values on the incoming packets are changed to the default CoS value that is configured with the mls qos cos command. If an incoming packet is tagged, the CoS value of the packet is modified at the ingress port. It is changed to the default CoS of that port.

Use the show mls qos interface privileged EXEC command to verify your settings.

Cisco 7600 Series Routers

CoS values are configurable on physical LAN ports only.

On Cisco 7600 series routers that are configured with a Supervisor Engine 2, the following restrictions apply:

This command is not supported on any WAN interface on the Optical Service Modules (OSMs).

This command is not supported on 4-port Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports.

Examples

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

All of the CoS-to-DSCP and DSCP-to-CoS maps are globally defined. You apply all maps to all ports.

If you enter the mls qos trust cos command, the default CoS-to-DSCP map is applied.

If you enter the mls qos trust dscp command, the default DSCP-to-CoS map is applied.

After a default map is applied, you can define the CoS-to-DSCP or DSCP-to-CoS map by entering consecutive mls qos map commands.

If the mls qos trust dscp command is entered and a packet with an untrusted DSCP value is at an ingress port, the packet CoS value is set to 0.

Use the show mls qos maps privileged EXEC command to verify your settings.

Examples

The following example shows how to define the DSCP-to-CoS map. DSCP values 16, 18, 24, and 26 are mapped to CoS 1. DSCP values 0, 8, and 10 are mapped to CoS 0.

Router# configure terminal

Usage Guidelines

All of the CoS-to-DSCP and DSCP-to-CoS maps are globally defined. You apply all maps to all ports.

If you enter the mls qos trust cos command, the default CoS-to-DSCP map is applied.

If you enter the mls qos trust dscp command, the default DSCP-to-CoS map is applied.

After a default map is applied, you can define the CoS-to-DSCP or DSCP-to-CoS map by entering consecutive mls qos map commands.

If the mls qos trust dscp command is entered and a packet with an untrusted DSCP value is at an ingress port, the packet CoS value is set to 0.

Use the show mls qos maps privileged EXEC command to verify your settings.

Examples

The following example shows how to define the CoS-to-DSCP map. CoS values 0 to 7 are mapped to DSCP values 8, 8, 8, 8, 24, 32, 56, and 56.

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.


Usage Guidelines

This command is not supported on the Catalyst 6500 series switches and the Cisco 7600 series routers that are configured with a Supervisor Engine 2.

This command is supported on the Catalyst 6500 series switches and the Cisco 7600 series routers that are configured with the following modules only:

WS-X6704-10GE

WS-X6724-SFP

WS-X6748-GE-TX

CoS mutation is not supported on non-802.1Q tunnel ports.

When you enter the mls qos map cos-mutation command, you are configuring the mutated-CoS values map to sequential ingress-CoS numbers. For example, by entering the mls qos map cos-mutation 2 3 4 5 6 7 0 1 command, you configure this map:

CoS-in

Separate the eight CoS values by a space.

After you define the map in global configuration mode, you can attach the map to a port.

If QoS is disabled, the port is not in a trust CoS mode, and the port is not in 802.1Q tunneling mode. The changes appear once you put the port into trust CoS mode and the port is configured as an 802.1Q tunnel port.

Release 12.2(17b)SXA and later releases support ingress-CoS mutation on 802.1Q tunnel ports and is on a per-port group basis only.

To avoid ingress-CoS mutation configuration failures, only create EtherChannels where all member ports support ingress-CoS mutation or where no member ports support ingress-CoS mutation. Do not create EtherChannels with mixed support for ingress-CoS mutation.

If you configure ingress-CoS mutation on a port that is a member of an EtherChannel, the ingress-CoS mutation is applied to the port-channel interface.

You can configure ingress-CoS mutation on port-channel interfaces.

Usage Guidelines

The DSCP-to-CoS map is used to map the final DSCP classification to a final CoS. This final map determines the output queue and threshold to which the packet is assigned. The CoS map is written into the Inter-Switch Link (ISL) header or 802.1Q tag of the transmitted packet on trunk interfaces and contains a table of 64 DSCP values and the corresponding CoS values. The Catalyst 6500 series switch and the Cisco 7600 series router have one map.

All of the CoS-to-DSCP and DSCP-to-CoS maps are globally defined. You apply all maps to all ports.

If you enter the mls qos trust cos command, the default CoS-to-DSCP map is applied.

If you enter the mls qos trust dscp command, the default DSCP-to-CoS map is applied.

After a default map is applied, you can define the CoS-to-DSCP or DSCP-to-CoS map by entering consecutive mls qos map commands.

If the mls qos trust dscp command is entered and a packet with an untrusted DSCP value is at an ingress port, the packet CoS value is set to 0.

Use the show mls qos maps privileged EXEC command to verify your settings.

Examples

The following example shows how to define the DSCP-to-CoS map. DSCP values 16, 18, 24, and 26 are mapped to CoS 1. DSCP values 0, 8, and 10 are mapped to CoS 0.

12.2(18)SXF2

This command was introduced on the Supervisor Engine 720.


Usage Guidelines

You can enter the mls qos mpls trust experimental command to treat MPLS packets as other Layer 2 packets for class of service (CoS) and egress queueing purposes (for example, to apply port or policy trust). All trusted cases (trust CoS/IP/Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP)) are treated as trust-cos.

Class of Service (CoS) refers to three bits in either an ISL header or an 802.1Q header that are used to indicate the priority of the Ethernet frame as it passes through a switched network. The CoS bits in the 802.1Q header are commonly referred to as the 802.1p bits. To maintain QoS when a packet traverses both Layer 2 and Layer 3 domain, the ToS and CoS values can be mapped to each other.

Examples

This example shows how to set the trusted state of MPLS packets to trust-cos:

Router(config-if)# mls qos mpls trust experimental 

This example shows how to set the trusted state of MPLS packets to untrusted:

Router(config-if)# no mls qos mpls trust experimental

12.2(33)SXH

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SXH.


Usage Guidelines

You can use the mls qos police serial command to configure the PFC3C or PFC3CXL ingress and egress policers to operate independently of each other (in serial mode). Normally, ingress and egress policers operate in parallel mode, where action by one policer causes a corresponding action in the other. For example, if the egress policer drops a packet, the ingress policer does not count the packet either. In serial mode, however, action by one policer does not cause a corresponding action in the other.


Note This command does not affect marking using policers.


Examples

The following command example shows how to enable serial policing mode on the PFC3C or PFC3CXL:

Router(config)# mls qos police serial

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.

12.2(33)SRE1

This command was modified. The bfd-ctrl, bfd-echo, glbp, and vrrp keywords were added.


Usage Guidelines

This command does not support ARP, ISIS, or EIGRP on Cisco 7600 series routers that are configured with a Supervisor Engine 2.

If you enter the precedence value keyword and arguments without entering the police rate burst keyword and arguments, only the packets from an untrusted port are marked.

You can make the protocol packets avoid the per-interface policy maps by entering the police rate, pass-through, or precedence value keywords and arguments.

The mls qos protocol command allows you to define the routing-protocol packet policing as follows:

When you specify the pass-through mode, the DSCP value does not change and is not policed.

When you set the police rate, the DSCP value does not change and is policed.

When you specify the precedence value, the DSCP value changes for the packets that come from an untrusted port, the class of service (CoS) value that is based on DSCP-to-CoS map changes, and the traffic is not policed.

When you specify the precedence value and the police rate, the DSCP value changes, the CoS value that is based on DSCP-to-CoS map changes, and the DSCP value is policed. In this case, the DSCP value changes are based on the trust state of the port; the DSCP value is changed only for the packets that come from an untrusted port.

If you do not enter a precedence value, the DSCP value is based on whether or not you have enabled multilayer switching (MLS) QoS as follows:

If you enabled MLS QoS and the port is untrusted, the internal DSCP value is overwritten to zero.

If you enabled MLS QoS and the port is trusted, then the incoming DSCP value is maintained.

You can make the protocol packets avoid policing completely if you choose the pass-through mode. If the police mode is chosen, the committed information rate (CIR) specified is the rate that is used to police all the specified protocol's packets, both entering or leaving the Cisco 7600 series router.

To protect the system by ARP broadcast, you can enter the mls qos protocol arp police bps command.

Examples

This example shows how to define the routing-protocol packet policing:

Router(config)# mls qos protocol arp police 43000

This example shows how to avoid policing completely:

Router(config)# mls qos protocol arp pass-through

This example shows how to define the IP-precedence value of the protocol packets to rewrite:

Router(config)# mls qos protocol bgp precedence 4

Usage Guidelines

In port-queueing mode, Policy Feature Card (PFC) QoS (marking and policing) is disabled, and packet type of service (ToS) and class of service (CoS) are not changed by the PFC. All queueing on rcv and xmt is based on a QoS tag in the incoming packet, which is based on the incoming CoS.

For 802.1Q or Inter-Link Switch (ISL)-encapsulated port links, queueing is based on the packet 802.1Q or ISL CoS.

For router main interfaces or access ports, queueing is based on the configured per-port CoS (the default CoS is 0).

Examples

12.2(18)SXF5

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

This command is supported on 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports only.

You should configure ports to trust DSCP only if they receive traffic that carries valid Layer 3 DSCP.

In Release 12.2(18)SXF5 and later releases, you can enable DSCP-based ingress queues and thresholds on WS-X6708-10GE ports to provide congestion avoidance.

In releases earlier than Release 12.2(18)SXF5, the ingress port queues and thresholds use only Layer 2 Class of Service (CoS), and Policy Feature Card (PFC) QoS does not implement ingress port congestion avoidance on ports configured to trust DSCP.

For traffic from trust DSCP ports, Policy Feature Card (PFC) QoS uses the received DSCP value as the initial internal DSCP value. PFC QoS does not mark any traffic on ingress ports configured to trust received DSCP.

Examples

This example shows how to set the queuing mode to DSCP on an interface:

12.2(33)SRD3

This command was modified. The slot slot keyword/argument pair was added.


Usage Guidelines

This command is not supported on Cisco 7600 series routers that are configured with a Supervisor Engine 2.

If you disable ToS-to-DSCP rewrite, and QoS is enabled globally, the following occurs:

Final ToS-to-DSCP rewrite is disabled, and the DSCP packet is preserved.

Policing and marking function according to the QoS configuration.

Marked and marked-down class of service (CoS) is used for queueing.

In QoS disabled mode, both ToS and CoS are preserved.

The no mls qos rewrite ip dscp command is incompatible with Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). The default mls qos rewrite ip dscp command must remain enabled in order for the PFC3BXL or PFC3B to assign the correct MPLS Experimental (EXP) value for the labels that it imposes. This restriction does not apply to PFC3C or PFC3CXL forward.

The mls qos rewrite ip dscp slot command can be used for disabling ToS-to-DSCP rewrite on supervisors or DFC linecards. Although the command will be accepted for non-DFC linecard slots, it does not come into effect unless a DFC linecard is inserted into that slot.

To disable rewrite on packets that are coming in on non-DFC linecards, disable the rewrite on the supervisor slots. Note that this disables the rewrite on packets that are coming in on all non-DFC linecards on the system.

Examples

The following example shows how to enable ToS-to-DSCP rewrite in slot 4:

Router(config)# mls qos rewrite ip dscp slot 4

The following example shows how to disable port-queueing mode globally:

Router(config)# no mls qos rewrite ip dscp

Usage Guidelines

QoS-statistics data export is not supported on Optical Services Modules (OSM) interfaces.

You must enable data export on the shared aggregate policer and globally to set up data export on your Cisco 7600 series router.

QoS-statistics data is exported using delimiter-separated fields. You can set the delimiter by entering the mls qos statistics-export delimiter command.

For each data export-enabled shared aggregate or named policer, statistics data per policer per EARL is exported. For each data export-enabled shared aggregate or named policer, the following information is exported:

Type (3 denotes aggregate policer export type)

Aggregate name

Direction (in or out)

Encoded Address Recognition Logic (EARL) identification

Accepted packets (accumulated hardware-counter values)

Exceeded normal-rate packets (accumulated hardware-counter values)

Exceeded excess-rate packets (accumulated hardware-counter values)

Time stamp (time in seconds since January 1, 1970 UTC relative)

If a shared aggregate policer is attached to policies in both directions, two records are exported (one in each direction). Each record will contain the same counter values for accepted packets, exceeded normal packet rates, and exceeded excess packet rates.

For example, if you have the following configuration:

QoS-statistics data export that is enabled on the shared aggregate policer named "aggr_1"

An EARL in the supervisor engine that is installed in slot 1

An EARL on the Distributed Forwarding Card (DFC) that is installed in slot 3

12.2(33)SRC

This command was introduced on the Cisco 7600 series routers.


Usage Guidelines

The RSP720-10GE has both 10GE and 1GE uplink ports. You can configure the RSP720-10GE to run QoS features on all uplink ports (mixed mode) or on 10GE ports only. The number of queues available for QoS depends on which mode is used:

In mixed mode (10GE and 1GE ports), the default, only four queues are available for QoS.

The QoS port architecture for fixed mode for 1GE ports is (Rx/Tx): 2q8t/1p3q8t.

In 10GE only mode, eight queues are available for QoS.

The QoS port architecture for 10GE only mode is as follows (Rx/Tx):

8q8t/1p7q8t (CoS)

16q8t/1p15q8t (DSCP)

16q1t/1p15q1t (VLAN)

When you switch between mixed-mode QoS and 10GE only mode, service is temporarily lost on the RSP720-10GE uplinks. In addition, when you switch between modes, any existing QoS configuration on the uplinks is lost. You must reconfigure QoS.

When you switch from 10GE only to mixed-mode QoS, you must issue the no shutdown command on each of the three 1GE ports to resume QoS service on those ports.

In 10GE only mode, the 1GE ports are visible but they remain in an administratively down state.


Note To obtain more information on queues, use the show queueing interface command.


Examples

The following example shows how to configure the RSP720-10GE to run QoS on 10GE ports only:

Router(config)# mls qos supervisor 10g-only
The following ports will be shut to enable 10g-only mode:
Gix/1 Gix/2 Gix/3 

The following example shows how in a redundant setup (High Availability), the 1GE uplink ports on both supervisors are shut down even though the redundant links are not used:

Router(config)# mls qos supervisor 10g-only
The following ports will be shut to enable 10g-only mode:
Gi6/1 Gi6/2 Gi6/3 Gi5/1 Gi5/2 Gi5/3

Command
Description

mls qos (interface configuration)

mls qos trust

To configure the multilayer switching (MLS) quality of service (QoS) port trust state and to classify traffic by examining the class of service (CoS) or differentiated services code point (DSCP) value, use the mls qos trust command in interface configuration mode. To return a port to its untrusted state, use the no form of this command.

mls qos trust [cos | device cisco-phone | dscp | ip-precedence ]

no mls qos trust

Syntax Description

cos

(Optional) Classifies incoming packets that have packet CoS values. The CoS bits in incoming frames are trusted. The internal DSCP value is derived from the CoS bits. The port default CoS value should be used for untagged packets.

device cisco-phone

(Optional) Configures Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) to detect whether or not a Cisco IP phone is attached to the port.

If CDP detects a Cisco IP phone, QoS applies a configured mls qos trust dscp, mls qos trust ip-precedence, or mls qos trust cos interface command.

If CDP does not detect a Cisco IP phone, QoS ignores any configured nondefault trust state.

dscp

(Optional) Classifies incoming packets that have packet DSCP values (the most significant 6 bits of the 8-bit service-type field). The ToS bits in the incoming packets contain the DSCP value. For non-IP packets, the packet CoS value is 0. If you do not enter a keyword, mls qos trust dscp is assumed.

ip-precedence

(Optional) Specifies that the ToS bits in the incoming packets contain an IP precedence value. The internal DSCP value is derived from the IP-precedence bits.


Command Default

The defaults are as follows:

If you enable global QoS, the port is not trusted.

If no keyword is specified or the global QoS is disabled, the default is dscp.

12.2(33)SXI

This command was modified. The device cisco-phone keywords were added.


Usage Guidelines

Packets that enter a QoS domain are classified at its edge. Because the packets are classified at the edge, the switch port within the QoS domain can be configured to a trusted state. It is not necessary to classify the packets at every switch within the domain. Use the mls qos trust command to set the trusted state of an interface and to indicate which fields of the packet are used to classify traffic.

When a port is configured with trust DSCP or trust IP precedence and the incoming packet is a non-IP packet, the CoS-to-DSCP map is used to derive the corresponding DSCP value from the CoS value. The CoS can be the packet CoS for trunk ports or the port default CoS for nontrunk ports.

If the DSCP is trusted, the DSCP field of the IP packet is not modified. However, it is still possible that the CoS value of the packet is modified (according to DSCP-to-CoS map).

If the CoS is trusted, the CoS field of the packet is not modified, but the DSCP can be modified (according to CoS-to-DSCP map) if the packet is an IP packet.

The trusted boundary with Cisco device verification feature, implemented with the device cisco-phone keywords, prevents security problems if users connect a non-phone device to a switch port that is configured to support a Cisco IP phone. You must globally enable CDP on the switch and on the port connected to the IP phone. If a Cisco IP phone is not detected, QoS does not apply any configured nondefault trust setting, which prevents misuse of a high-priority queue.

If you configure the trust setting for DSCP or IP precedence, the DSCP or IP precedence values in the incoming packets are trusted. If you configure the mls qos cos override interface configuration command on the switch port connected to the IP phone, the switch overrides the CoS of the incoming voice and data packets and assigns the default CoS value to them.

For an inter-QoS domain boundary, you can configure the port to the DSCP-trusted state and apply the DSCP-to-DSCP-mutation map if the DSCP values are different between the QoS domains.

Classification using a port trust state (for example, mls qos trust [cos | dscp | ip-precedence] and a policy map (for example, service-policy input policy-map-name) are mutually exclusive. The last one configured overwrites the previous configuration.

The following conditions apply to the mls qos trust command running on the Catalyst 6500 series switches or the Cisco 7600 series routers:

The cos keyword is not supported for pos or atm interface types.

The trust state does not apply to FlexWAN modules.

The trust state does not apply to 1q4t LAN ports except for Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Incoming queue drop thresholds are not implemented when you enter the mls qos trust cos command on 4-port Gigabit Ethernet WAN modules.


Note Use the set qos-group command to set the trust state on Catalyst 6500 series switch and Cisco 7600 series router Layer 2 WAN interfaces.


Examples

Usage Guidelines

This command is not supported on WAN modules.

If you set the phone to trusted mode, all the packets from the PC are sent untouched directly through the phone to the Cisco 7600 series router. If you set the phone to untrusted mode, all the traffic coming from the PC are remarked with the configured CoS value before being sent to the Cisco 7600 series router.

Each time that you enter the mls qos trust extend command, the mode is changed. For example, if the mode was previously set to trusted, if you enter the command, the mode changes to untrusted. Enter the show queueing interface command to display the current trust mode.

Examples

This example shows how to set the phone that is attached to the switch port in trust mode:

Router(config-if)# interface fastethernet5/1

This command was implemented on the ESR-PRE2.

12.2(31)SB

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(31)SB.


Usage Guidelines

Assignment of MPLS EXP levels to VC bundle members allows you to create differentiated service because you can distribute the MPLS EXP levels over the different VC bundle members. You can map a single level or a range of levels to each discrete VC in the bundle, thereby enabling VCs in the bundle to carry packets marked with different levels. Alternatively, you can configure a VC with the mpls experimental other command to indicate that it can carry traffic marked with levels not specifically configured for it. Only one VC in the bundle can be configured with the mpls experimental other command to carry all levels not specified. This VC is considered the default one.

To use this command in VC-class configuration mode, enter the vc-class atm global configuration command before you enter this command. This command has no effect if the VC class that contains the command is attached to a standalone VC, that is, if the VC is not a bundle member.

To use this command to configure an individual bundle member in bundle-VC configuration mode, first enter the bundle command to enact bundle configuration mode for the bundle to which you want to add or modify the VC member to be configured. Then use the pvc-bundle command to specify the VC to be created or modified and enter bundle-VC configuration mode.

VCs in a VC bundle are subject to the following configuration inheritance guidelines (listed in order of next highest MPLS EXP level):

VC configuration in bundle-VC mode

Bundle configuration in bundle mode (with the effect of assigned VC class configuration)

Subinterface configuration in subinterface mode


Note If you are using an ATM interface, you must configure all MPLS EXP levels (ranging from 0 to 7) for the bundle. For this configuration, Cisco recommends configuring one member of the bundle with the mpls experimental other command. The other keyword defaults to any MPLS EXP level in a range from 0 to 7 that is not explicitly configured.


Examples

The following example configures a class named control-class that includes an mpls experimental command that, when applied to a bundle, configures all VC members of that bundle to carry MPLS EXP level 7 traffic. Note that VC members of that bundle can be individually configured with the mpls experimental command at the bundle-vc level, which would supervene.

vc-class atm control-class
 mpls experimental 7

The following example configures permanent virtual circuit (PVC) 401, named control-class, to carry traffic with MPLS EXP levels in the range of 4 to 2, overriding the level mapping set for the VC through VC-class configuration:

pvc-bundle control-class 401
 mpls experimental 4-2
