I have a network with Cisco switches, Cisco IP Phones and video traffic. I want to add QoS markers to my traffic but I don't want to do it manually.
Ideally I want to use Cisco's auto QOS features but I'm not sure where I should add the commands.
My IP phones are on access switches and the traffic goes back to my core switch where it is routed towards several call manager servers.
My understanding is to do this :
- Enable QoS on all switches (access, distribution & core) with "mls qos"
- Enable auto QOS markings on interfaces connected to cisco ip phones with "auto qos voip cisco-phone"
- Enable auto QOS trust on network uplinks with "auto qos voip trust"
Is this right ? Is there anything else to do ? Should I put "auto qos voip trust" on network uplinks for both directions on traffic ? (forward and back) Will there be downtime to be aware of ?
