Introducing IPQoS (Overview)

IP Quality of Service (IPQoS) enables you to prioritize, control, and gather accounting statistics. Using IPQoS, you can provide consistent levels of service to users of your network. You can also manage traffic to avoid network congestion.

The following is a list of topics in this chapter:

Note - The IPQoS facility might be removed in a future release. Users are encouraged to instead use the dladm, flowadm, and related commands, which support similar bandwidth resource control features. For more information, see Using Virtual Networks in Oracle Solaris 11.1.
