Device QoS troubleshooting

CiscoWorks QPM provides a scalable platform for defining, applying, and monitoring QoS policy on a system-wide basis for Cisco devices, including routers and switches.

QPM enables the baselining of profile network traffic, creates QoS policies at an abstract level, controls the deployment of policies, and monitors QoS to verify intended results. As a centralized tool, QPM is used to monitor and provision QoS for groups of interfaces and devices.

QPM provides a web-based intuitive user interface to define QoS policies and translates those policies into the device CLI commands.

QPM allows for analyzing of traffic throughput by application or service class. This analysis leverages that information to configure QoS policies to differentiate traffic and define the QoS functions that are applied to each type of traffic flow.

By simplifying QoS policy definition and deployment, QPM makes it easier to create and manage end-to-end differentiated services in a network, thus making more efficient and economical use of existing network resources. For example, policies can be deployed that ensure that mission-critical applications always get the bandwidth required to run the business.
