Lowest configuration required to apply QoS: example of a LAN/WAN architecture

This section describes the lowest configuration required to apply QoS: in an architecture that has a local network (attached to the LAN interface in this example) and Internet access (attached to the WAN interface in this example). The various steps to follow are:

  • Create the default queue and default acknowledgment (ACK) queue for each QoS-enabled interface,
  • Specify traffic shapers,
  • Assign traffic shapers, default acknowledgment (ACK) queues and default queues for QoS-enabled interfaces.
