Setting up MPPP + QOS on Cisco IOS 12.4 router
Posted on 2013-05-17
I have an existing point-to-point T1 which is set up with QOS for a specific group of servers (as T1 % bandwidth). We will be adding a 2nd T1 with a plan to bond together.
It appears that the existing serial interface is set for HDLC (no reference otherwise - see below). I understand we need to set both ends up for PPP encapsulation to configure MPPP(correct?).
Would this simply require the following configs for MPPP (each T1 serial interface, both routers)?
- encapsulation ppp
- ppp multilink
- multilink group 1
- no ip address
I understand that an MPPP interface has to be configured on each router (ie ip address, ppp multilink, multilink-group 1) - this is outside of the scope of the question at this point.
Once MPPP is configured, would QOS be configured by applying the service-policy output to the MPPP interface or would it be applied to each T1 individually?
Following is a copy of one of our existing T1 serial Interfaces for your reference. Advice is much appreciated.
description T1 to Remote site
ip address 10.10.10.245 255.255.255.252
no ip redirects
no ip unreachables
ip flow ingress
no ip mroute-cache
service-policy output QOS
