Thanks Brian for the
I just want to know that if I have a dscp code mapping to a
strict priority queueing with a MF classifier will suffice a rfc 2474 compliant
Im new to this diffserv mailing and sorry for the trouble if
Im askin some absurd question.
Pl do throw light on this.
We are working to set up a diffserv implementors' list where this kind of
will be the main subject. Here, we develop the standards. However,
list does not yet exist...
2. It depends what you mean
by minimal. If you are satisfied with the Class Selector
PHBs, all you
have to do is implement RFC 2474. In a host, this is a pretty small,
possibly null, change to an existing RFC 791 implementation. If you want
the AF or EF PHBs, you also have to implement RFC 2597 and
3. RSVP and Diffserv can simply co-exist, or they can
interwork. For simple
coexistence, you don't have to do anything. For
interworking, there are
proposals in the ISSLL working group that have
not yet been standardized
(although they have been implemented in at
least one operating system).
For all of the above, it is really
desirable for the server to support traffic shaping.
It is more or less
useless for a server to request QOS (either by using RSVP/IntServ
Diffserv) without shaping the outgoing traffic stream. Also, of
it's useless unless your network infrastructure and ISP support

Thanks in advance.
