Class-Based QoS Usage report reveals class-based quality of service (CBQoS) metrics within your network. This report indicates the effectiveness of class-based policies applied for specific traffic classes, which are used to prioritize and shape network traffic. Note that class-based policies can be applied to specific interfaces and traffic direction.
The "class" in CBQoS is actually an NBAR classification (designated by rules applied at the router). NBAR classification rules at the router can identify a traffic stream by different criteria such as interface, port, and so on.
Class-Based QoS Usage chart data reflect the following:
Note: You must have defined QoS classes and policies on the source device before this report is able to display results.
Note: The CBQoS information generated by the source device must be gathered using SNMP polling for CBQoS information.
Choose source. , Choose a networking device or single physical or virtual interface you want to see Class-Based QoS Usage measurements for. Choose traffic direction across an interface.
Choose, filter, and reorder columns. Choose, hide, and reorder columns to customize your data view.
Tip: The totals for this report are gathered by direct polling selected interfaces running on the target device. Advanced Filters can be applied only for reports generated from flow summary data.
