User Profile QoS Settings

View, add, and modify user profile QoS (quality of service) settings. Manage the rate per user per AP.

About User Profile QoS

Extreme Networks devices can apply QoS (Quality of Service) to traffic originating from members of user profiles to prioritize traffic by category. You can set rate limits and traffic forwarding rules for each traffic class.

You can set the maximum traffic forwarding rate and scheduling weight at two levels: for individual users in a user profile and for all users to whom the user profile applies. Through the rate control and queuing profile that you assign to user profiles, you define QoS policing rates and scheduling weights at the individual user level. In the QoS section in a user profile configuration, you define the rates and weights at the user profile level. Through the combined configuration of forwarding mechanisms and rate limits, you control how a device schedules traffic forwarding.

Configure User Profile QoS Settings

To configure QoS settings for a user profile, navigate to Configure > Common Objects > Policy > User Profiles. To add a new user profile, select . To add or modify QoS settings for an existing profile, either select the name of the profile in the list, or select the check box for the profile and select . You can also clone an existing profile and add, delete, or modify QoS settings for the clone.

The following settings map anonymous incoming traffic into the classification system:

  1. Create or select a user profile as described in "User Profile Settings".
  2. In the Create User Profile window, select the QoS tab.
  3. Turn QoS On to display the settings.
  4. Configure the Rate Limit per User Profile per AP to set the aggregate rate limit for all the users in the user profile. Enter a value between 1000 and 2000 Mbps (1000000 and 2000000 Kbps).
  5. Select Manage Rate Limit per Client.
  6. Set the Rate Limit Per Client from 0 to 2000 Mbps (0-2000000 Kbps).
  7. Set a weight percentage for each of the seven traffic classes in Traffic Queue Management Per User per AP, and set other details, as required.
  8. Select Save.
  9. In the Quality of Service (QoS) window, enter the Scheduling Weight, from 1 to 1000. Devices forward traffic of a higher class and greater weight faster than traffic of a lower class and lesser weight.
  10. From the Mark outgoing traffic using drop-down list, select one of the following: DSCP (DiffServ codepoint), or 802.1p. Extreme Networks devices can apply priority and class mappings to outgoing traffic based on either of these standard QoS classification systems.
  11. Leave the (Traffic Monitoring) parameter unchanged.
  12. When you are finished , select Save.
