Auto-QoS is a feature of Cisco network devices which enables them to automatically configure Quality of Service (QoS) parameters on the network. This feature allows the network administrator to configure QoS policies without having to manually specify every single parameter.
The primary goal of Auto-QoS is to simplify the QoS configuration process while maintaining a high level of performance. Auto-QoS can be used to configure QoS policies on Cisco switches, routers, and wireless access points.
Auto-QoS automatically applies QoS policies to all traffic on the network. It does this by mapping traffic into different categories and assigning each category a different level of priority. This ensures that the most important traffic is given the highest priority and is delivered first.
Auto-QoS also allows the network administrator to set up specific rules for different types of traffic. For example, the administrator can specify different levels of priority for voice, video, and data traffic. This allows the network to prioritize traffic based on the type of application, which can be beneficial in a network where multiple types of applications are running.
Auto-QoS also helps to reduce the complexity of configuring QoS policies. By automatically configuring QoS policies, the administrator can spend less time manually specifying parameters and more time focusing on other tasks.
Auto-QoS can be configured by using the Cisco Auto-QoS configuration wizard. This wizard walks the network administrator through the steps of configuring an Auto-QoS policy. It also provides a graphical interface that makes it easy to configure and manage the policy.
Auto-QoS is a great way to simplify the process of configuring QoS policies. It reduces the amount of time that the administrator needs to spend configuring QoS policies, while still providing a high level of performance. By using Auto-QoS, the administrator can quickly and easily configure QoS policies without worrying about manually configuring every single parameter.
