What is QoS and how do I setup QoS shapers on Mushroom?

Quality of service (QoS) is the description or measurement of the overall performance of a service, such as a telephony or computer network or a cloud computing service.

What features of QoS are supported on Mushroom devices?

  • Enhanced controls via the application-aware layer allowing visibility, filtering, and reservation.
  • Traffic prioritization can be set for mission-critical, real time VoIP, etc.
  • Bandwidth guarantee for applications, and blocking harmful or unnecessary traffic.
  • Graphical visibility where the presentation layer allows users to see application traffic, network characteristics, and performance profiles.

How do I setup QoS shapers?

In order to use the Quality of Service (QoS) feature, you must first create the WAN Shaper rule (“Quality of Service Shaper”) under “ADVANCED” tab. A rate that is 85% of the rate provided by the ISP should be created as the shaper rule both for uplink (egress) and downlink (ingress). Following is an example of setting the uplink rate, ISP uplink rate in this example is around 12mbps, the egress shaper for WAN1 is set to 10mbps (approx. 85% of 12mbps):

Please take a look at this document to know about the buffer & burst fields above.

Note: For setting QoS Shaper rules for VLL tunnel (Remote LAN) interfaces, you will select ‘Device Type’ as ‘vll’ and ‘Device Index’ will be the tunnel name that you as assigned in remote LAN configuration.
