Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name


First Published: March 31, 2000

Last Updated: May 4, 2009

The Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name feature provides the ability to download a policy name that describes quality of service (QoS) parameters for a user session from a RADIUS server and apply them for the particular session.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest feature information and caveats, see 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 for Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name" section.

Use Cisco Feature Navigator to find information about platform support and Cisco IOS and Catalyst OS software image support. To access Cisco Feature Navigator, go to http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/jsp/index.jsp. An account on Cisco.com is not required.

Feature Information for Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

Prerequisites for Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

Before you configure the Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name feature, you must locally define on your router the policy whose name is received from the RADIUS server.

Information About Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

Effective with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)T, separate Cisco vendor-specific attributes (VSAs) are added for the service map.

To configure the Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name feature, you must understand the following concept:

VSAs Added for Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

Two new VSAs have been added for the service map, and the VSAs will bypass the parser while applying the policy for a particular user or session. The new VSAs are as follows:

vendor-id=9 (Cisco) Vendor type 37 for upstream traffic to input policy name

vendor-id=9 (Cisco) Vendor type 38 for downstream traffic to output policy name

How to Configure Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

This section contains the following procedure:

Monitoring and Maintaining Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

To configure per-user QoS, use the authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) policy name that you have received from the RADIUS server. To configure QoS policy, refer to the "Related Documents" section.

Monitoring and Maintaining Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

To monitor and maintain per-user QoS using the AAA policy name, use the following debug commands:

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. debug aaa authorization

3. debug aaa per-user

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

debug aaa authorization

Example:

Router# debug aaa authorization

Displays information about AAA/TACACS+ authorization.

Step 3 

debug aaa per-user

Example:

Router# debug aaa per-user

Displays information about per-user QoS parameters.

Configuration Example for Per-User QoS via AAA Policy Name

The following example shows per-user QoS being configured using the AAA policy name "policy_class_1_2":

!NAS configuration 
class-map match-all class1 
 match access-group 101 
class-map match-all class2 
 match qos-group 4 
 match access-group 101 

policy-map policy_class_1_2 
 class class1 
 bandwidth 3000 
 queue-limit 30 
 class class2 
 bandwidth 2000 
 class class-default 
 bandwidth 500 

!RADIUS Profile Configuration 
peruser_qos_1    Password = "password1" 
 Service-Type = Framed, 
 Framed-Protocol = PPP, 
 Cisco:Cisco-avpair = "ip:sub-policy-In=ssspolicy"
!ssspolicy in the above line is the name of the policy.

peruser_qos_2    Password = "password1" 
 Service-Type = Framed, 
 Framed-Protocol = PPP, 
 Cisco:Cisco-avpair = "ip:sub-policy-Out=ssspolicy"

RADIUS—Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service. RADIUS is a database for authenticating modem and ISDN connections and for tracking connection time.

VSA—vendor-specific attribute. A VSA is an attribute that has been implemented by a particular vendor. It uses the attribute Vendor-Specific to encapsulate the resulting AV pair: essentially, Vendor-Specific = protocol:attribute = value.
