Chapter 2

Planning for an IPQoS-Enabled Network (Tasks)

You can configure IPQoS on any system that runs Oracle Solaris. The IPQoS system then works with Diffserv-aware routers to provide differentiated services and traffic management on an intranet.

This chapter contains planning tasks for adding IPQoS-enabled systems onto a Diffserv-aware network. The following topics are covered.

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.
