Advanced Networking : QoS : Configuring the QoS filter
Configuring the QoS filter
A QoS filter is the policy that assigns traffic to the QoS queue.
Before you begin:
You must have a good understanding and knowledge of traffic in your network that requires QoS provisioning.
You must have created the address configuration objects and service configuration objects that define the matching tuple for QoS rules. Use the Shared Resources menu firewall address and service object configuration editor.
You must have created a QoS queue configuration object.
You must have Read-Write permission for System settings.
To configure QoS filter:
1. Go to Networking > QoS.
The configuration page displays the QoS Filter tab. For IPv6, click the QoS IPv6 Filter tab.
2. Click Add to display the configuration editor.
3. Complete the configuration as described in Table 122.
4. Save the configuration.
5. Reorder rules, as necessary.
Table 122: QoS configuration
Configuration name. Valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, _, and -. No spaces.
After you initially save the configuration, you cannot edit the name.
Enable/disable the filter.
Select the queue that will be used for packets that match the filter criteria.
Select a service object to use to form the matching tuple.
Select a source address object to use to form the matching tuple.
Select a destination address object to use to form the matching tuple.
Ingress Interface
Select the interface that receives traffic.
Egress Interface
Select the interface that forwards traffic.
After you have saved a rule, reorder rules as necessary. The rules table is consulted from top to bottom. The first rule that matches is applied and subsequent rules are not evaluated.
