Cisco CBQoS is a relatively lesser-known feature set, but delivers compelling value in terms of ensuring that business critical applications get the right priority on the network.

With more and more network managers implementing QoS policies to better manage their corporate network, a technology that can deliver insights into the effectiveness of these policies can be valuable. This is exactly what Cisco CBQoS is designed to deliver. CBQoS can help analyze the pre-policy, post-policy and the drop within each class of traffic on your network and help network administrators make more informed QoS policy decisions.

In addition, CBQoS can also provide queuing statistics on each class of traffic. Since CBQoS is a part of the Cisco IOS, there is no additional investment and the metrics are retrieved using SNMP. The latest version of ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer adds out-of-the-box support for Cisco CBQoS and provides insightful reports on per class traffic usage patterns.
