  1. Hi Rene, i like your blog and web gns3vault
    I’ve a question because i’m doing troubleshooting with qos in switches and when i look at the policy i don’t see what i expect to see.

    i have applied a policy fa0/1 input. i inject traffic but i don’t see ever increasing packet. Could it be because it is a switch ? when is a router i see increases

  2. Hi Rene,

    I have a question and may not be related to this section but it is to switches. I have been having latency issues with all my users in one location.

    Take a look at this post, there I explain how queuing works and there’s a great video that explains QoS on the switches:


    Here’s an example of a production 3560 switch here without “mls qos” enabled, you can see it’s queuing:

  5. Hello Fabrice

    If you mark Skype traffic (or any traffic for that matter), you can be sure that this traffic will be marked only within the network that you administrate. If the packet exits your network, (via your ISP, the Internet etc), you can’t be sure that those markings will be obeyed or even removed. It depends on the policies of your ISP and any agreements you have made with them. But even so, traffic that is destined to the internet at large does not generally have QoS mechanisms applied to it. The Internet is best effort at best.

    So it is almost ce
