Enterasys QoS setup
Posted on 2016-10-04
I have a DR site connected to my corporate office. The DR site is using a older C3G switch which is similar to the C5 Securestack line. The corporate office is using a N7 switch with platinum DFEs. My question is how do I configure QoS. The config guide and feature guide on the Extreme website might as well be in ancient Babylonian. It doesn't make any sense to me. All I'm trying to do is ensure VoIP traffic and my video conference system gets first priority. If the video conference is tagging packets as EF, why can't I just create an access-list in the (router) like this and assign it to a vlan interface.
access-list 100 permit ip any any dscp ef assign-queue 5
access-list 100 permit ip any any assign-queue 4
This should work but I never lose my jitter on the video system and the Enterasys documentation doesn't ever seem to offer this as an example.
P.S. Yes, I know this is rather old hardware. Don't get me started. :)
