Cisco Quality of Service (QoS) Audit
There are many reasons to do an audit of QoS on your Cisco network system.
For one, knowing what you have is a first step when starting your QoS project. You also might have inherited a network and you want to know what you’re working with. Or you might have hired a consultant to do QoS and you want to know what they did.
Whatever the reason is, you’ll probably be surprised at what you find.
Doing an audit from scratch can be an extremely time consuming task. You can hear the groan of the engineer that gets assigned that task. To do an audit, you have to get the QoS configuration from all your devices, get a sense of what policies exists, what types of classes have been defined, run some heuristic rules to see what the issues might be, etc. Of course, you can always hire a consultant to do it for you, but things like this should really be automated. Luckily there are tools like LiveAction that have this automation built in!
To start the audit in LiveAction, you hit the audit button. It then goes through all the QoS configurations on all the devices and gives you a complete audit report.
