About QPM

What's New?

About QPM

QoS Policy Manager (QPM) lets you analyze traffic throughput by application or service class, and then leverage that information to configure QoS policies to differentiate traffic and to define the QoS functions to be applied to each type of traffic flow. Using QoS policies, QPM also allows you to monitor network traffic based on historical, real-time, or threshold analysis.

By simplifying QoS policy definition and deployment, QPM makes it easier for you to create and manage end-to-end differentiated services in your network, thus making more efficient and economical use of your existing network resources.

For example, you can deploy policies that ensure that your mission-critical applications always get the bandwidth required to run your business.

QPM is suitable for large-scale enterprise deployments, and IP telephony deployments, consisting of hundreds or thousands of devices. QPM helps you to manage large networks by providing advanced user authorization capabilities through integration with Cisco Access Control Server (ACS).

QPM runs on the CiscoWorks Common Services server, which provides the infrastructure required by QPM to run from the CiscoWorks desktop environment, and also provides management of user roles and privileges, allowing you to control who gets access to specific tasks in QPM.

What's New?

QPM 4.0 is a major release intended to restructure the QoS Management product line after the release of QPM 3.2.3, by adding significant new features with updated device/OS support

The following new features are added in QoS Policy Manager 4.0:

Significant Platform Upgrades (support for Solaris 8 and 9, Windows 2003)

Compatability with Common Services 3.0.5 and LMS 2.6

Support for additional devices in the Catalyst series including Cat 2950, 3560, 3750, 4500, and 4900

Availability of new QoS features (heirarchical QoS or nested policies, PDLM support, VC Bundle support, additional output scheduling support for Catalyst 6000)

Support for Time-Based ACL to police applications and class maps that are time-of-the-day sensitive

Set up of traffic compression properties for class-based RTP and TCP IP header

Support for configuring SRR mappings for Ingress and Egress queues, based on weighed threshold drop (WTD) percentages, buffer values, and class of service (CoS) values

Defining Traffic Control settings by enabling CoS override and QoS preclassification, and by changing the Maximum Reserved Bandwidth

Monitoring of devices for threshold violations, by generating events when low or high threshold values are crossed.
