ipqos - IP Quality of Service
ipqos is an implementation of the Differentiated Services model defined in RFC2475: An Architecture for Differentiated Services, which defines the following entities: multi-field classifier, meter, marker, and dropper. The Solaris implementation of ipqos adds a flow accounting entity.
These entities can be combined into processing paths that constitute a series of actions that are performed on groups of flows. The classifier groups together flows and directs them in a given processing path. Classifier configuration and path construction are achieved using the ipqosconf(8) command.
A summary of the ipqos entities follows. For more information, refer to the corresponding man page for each entity.
ipqos modules export statistics through the kstat facility. Exported statistics contain the following common parameters:
To verify classifier configuration, generate traffic for each of the configured classes and check that the statistic counters for the expected class are increased. If you're unsure about the parameters for your traffic, you can use snoop(8) to determine them.
Some actions have the instance id of the next configured action in their statistics. This instance id can be used to follow the action processing path. Instance id's -1 and -2 are the built-in actions continue and drop, respectively.
To retrieve all statistics for ipgpc:
kstat -m ipgpc
To retrieve statistics for the class http:
kstat -m ipgpc -c http
