Example: Configuring a Multifield Classifier was new territory for me because this is my first class-of-service example. Whew! It was a heavy lift. Let me explain: Before I could write this little example, I first had to put in place a traffic generator. As you know, traffic generation can be done with expensive hardware or free software, and everything in between. I opted for free software running on a virtual machine. What can I say? Free is good. Who doesn't like free?
I very much want to give kudos to Robert T. Wright for helping me integrate virtual machines into our test lab and helping me test various traffic generation solutions (namely, Ostinato and hping). Also, big kudos to Kieran Milne for the Learning Bytes video that is featured in the example.
And don’t forget…There are two ways to get in touch with me: By rating and commenting on my examples, or by adding a comment to one of my blog posts. I look forward to hearing from you.
