Hi All.
With regards to the VOIP vlan. When setting the forwarding class if you use one the four predefined ones I am assuming you still have to configure a schedule map for those (except best effort and network control). Documentation is sketchy.

Actually, you need to set up firewall filter that assigns traffic to a particular queue. You can assign the firewall filter to an interface, or, I believe, to a VLAN, if I'm not mistaken.

I cannot really go into details off the top of my head, but the basic idea is: firewall filters classify switch-ingress traffic, and schedulers tell how to handle the different classes of traffic at switch-egress.

Hi Rich,

 

No - it's my understanding that setting the forwarding-class for the voip-vlan places ALL traffic that enters that VLAN into the specified forwarding class, regardless of any markings on the traffic.

 

You can override this however.

 

Cheers,
