2.  Introduction

This document defines a set of policy rule classes for describing
quality of service (QoS) policies.

This document structures QoS policy information as instances of policy
rule classes.  A policy rule class (PRC) is an ordered set of scalar
attributes.  Policy rule classes are arranged in a hierarchical
structure similar to tables in SNMP's SMIv2 [SNMP-SMI].  As with SNMP
tables, they are identified by a sequence of integer identifiers (an
Object Identifier).

For each policy rule class a device may have zero or more policy rule
instances.  Each policy rule instance is also identified by a sequence
of integers where the first part of the sequence is the ID of the PRC.
Collections of policy rule classes are defined in PIB modules.  These
modules are written using a structure designed for policy information
which is described in [COPS-PR].

3.  General PIB Concepts

3.1.  Roles

The policy to apply to an interface may depend on many factors such as
immutable characteristics of the interface (e.g., ethernet or frame

                                                                [Page 2]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

relay), the status of the interface (e.g., half or full duplex), or user
configuration (e.g., branch office or headquarters interface).  Rather
than specifying policies explicitly for each interface in the QoS
domain, policies are specified in terms of interface functionality.

To describe these functionalities of an interface we use the concept of
"roles".  A role is simply a string that is associated with an
interface.  A given interface may have any number of roles
simultaneously.  Policy rule classes have an attribute called a "role-
combination" which is an unordered set of roles.  Instances of a given
policy rule class are applied to an interface if and only if the set of
roles in the role combination is identical to the set of the roles of
the interface.

Thus, roles provide a way to bind policy to interfaces without having to
explicitly identify interfaces in a consistent manner across all network
devices.  (The SNMP experience with ifIndex has proved this to be a
difficult task.)  That is, roles provide a level of indirection to the
application of a set of policies to specific interfaces.  Furthermore,
if the same policy is being applied to several interfaces, that policy
need be pushed to the device only once, rather than once per interface,
as long as the interfaces are configured with the same role combination.

We point out that, in the event that the administrator needs to have
unique policy for each interface, this can be achieved by configuring
each interface with a unique role.

The PEP reports all its role combinations to the PDP at connect time or
whenever they change.

The comparing of roles (or role combinations) must be case insensitive.
For display purposes, roles (or role combinations) should preserve the
case specified by the user.

The concept and usage of roles in this document is consistent with that
specified in [POLICY].  Roles are currently under discussion in the
IETF's Policy WG; as and when that discussion reaches a conclusion, this
PIB will be updated in accordance with that conclusion.

3.2.  Reporting of Device Capabilities

Each network device providing policy-based services has its own inherent
capabilities.  These capabilities can be hardware specific, e.g., an
ethernet interface supporting input classification, or can be statically
configured, e.g., supported queuing disciplines.  These capabilities are

                                                                [Page 3]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

communicated to the PDP when initial policy is requested by the PEP.
Knowing device capabilities, the PDP can send the policy rule instances
(PRIs) relevant to the specific device, rather than sending the entire
PIB.

4.  DiffServ PIB Concepts

4.1.  Filters, Filter Groups and Classifiers

The basis of differential QoS treatment of packets is a filter. This is
simply a general specification for matching a pattern to appear in
packets belonging to flows, e.g. microflows or bandwidth aggregates.
Associated with each filter is a permit/deny flag which effectively
gives a negation operation.

Sets of these filters are used to create classifiers. Classifiers are
applied to interfaces with a direction flag to indicate an ingress or
egress classifier. Filters are combined, in order, into filter groups;
filter groups are then combined, in order, to build a classifier. This
allows a rudimentary classification grammar to be defined. On input,
each packet is checked against the ingress classifier on the interface.
Similarly, on output each packet is checked against the egress
classifier on the interface. The result of the classifier then feeds
into appropriate meters and actions to be applied to packets.

For each classifier, the packet is checked against the set of filter
groups in the appropriate order. The detailed operation of the PIB
syntax is as follows. If a packet matches a filter in the first filter
group of a classifier and the sense is "permit" then the subsequent
meters and actions associated with that classifier are applied to that
packet and no further filters are compared. If the sense is "deny" then
the rest of the filters in the current filter group are skipped and
operation proceeds with the first filter of the next filter group. If
the packet does not match any of the filters in the filter group then
the next filter group is tried. This process is continued until a
definitive match is obtained. Each classifier must cover all possible
matches i.e., it must be complete.

4.2.  Applying QoS Policy Using Targets

The task of applying QoS policy within a network requires the
specification of several components. The flows to which QoS policy
should be applied must be identified. The interfaces of the device on
which the policy should be enforced must be known. A certain set of

                                                                [Page 4]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

parameters to support flow metering is also required. The combination of
these components provides the target against which QoS policy is to be
applied. Within the context of the QoS PIB, the association between
these components is defined efficiently using the Target class.

The Target class serves to logically link several other QoS policy
classes. Flow classification rules, specifying behavior aggregate (BA)
or multi-field (MF) classification parameters, are indirectly identified
using the PRC for the appropriate classification class (e.g., IP, 802)
coupled with an identifier for a specific classifier. Interface
information is specified using the role combination tag, defined in the
Interface Type class, to identify the group of interfaces on which
classification is to be performed. The direction of packet flow on the
identified interfaces is provided as well. A link to the metering
component is provided using the PRC for the appropriate metering class
instance.

Once a target has been defined, actions based on the classification and
metering phases must be specified. Action class instances are linked
with the Target entry through the associated Meter class instance.  A
precedence component is also provided so that a definitive order of
evaluation may be defined for Target class instances being applied to
the same interface role and flow direction targets. The Target class
thus functions as the integration point for the range of components used
for the application of QoS policy.

4.3.  Queue Modeling with Queue Sets

The traffic processing capabilities of an interface are determined by
the queuing resources that are associated with the interface.  These
capabilities are represented abstractly using queue sets. A queue set is
comprised of one or more individual queues and facilitates treating the
collection of queues as a single unit based on their combined behaviors.
A device may support a number of different queue sets. The number of
queue sets supported by a device is typically related to the number of
unique combinations of interface properties within that device. The
queue set abstraction is not limited to modeling physical interface
properties, however, and can be used to represent logical and dynamic
queuing behavior as well.

Each individual queue in a set is characterized by the interface
bandwidth it can consume, the queuing discipline it employs and it's
relationship with other queues in the set. Interface bandwidth
allocation per queue can be represented in either relative or absolute
terms. A queue's drain size (i.e., the maximum number of bytes that may

                                                                [Page 5]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

be drained from the queue in one cycle) can be used to determine the
relative bandwidth allocation. The sum of the drain sizes of all of the
related queues in a set is used to compute the percentage of interface
bandwidth allocated to a specific queue based on its drain size. The
maximum interface bandwidth that is available may also be described in
absolute terms.

The traffic processing paradigm employed by a given queue is represented
by queue discipline attributes. Several general purpose and well-known
queuing disciplines (e.g., priority, fifo, weighted fair queuing) are
supported and a mechanism to define additional paradigms in an
extensible fashion is provided.  The relationship among queues within a
set is specified using a service order attribute. This attribute
provides an additional level of service precedence among queues. This is
required for describing the behavior of queues utilizing the same
processing discipline (e.g., a series of priority queues) and when the
various queues that comprise a queue set are serviced using a mix of
queuing disciplines (e.g., priority and weighted round robin queues).
These individual queue attributes, when combined, support the
representation of (potentially) complex queuing systems associated with
an interface type (i.e., role combination).

4.4.  IP Mapping to and from Layer 2

The PIB specifies QoS policy by assigning DSCP values to specific
queues, but in order to provide a complete QoS picture, the PIB must
consider that not all devices on the network are diffserv capable, i.e.,
capable of setting/inspecting a packet's DSCP value.  Specifically, the
network might include layer 2 devices (switches) that can only support
IEEE 802.1p classes of service. In order to support network
configuration that consists of diffserv capable devices and devices that
can only support IEEE 802.1p, the PIB has included a mapping table that
can allow the DSCP values to be mapped to specific IEEE 802.1p tag
values.

   DSCP ---------- DSCP     -------- DSCP     ---------- DSCP
  ----->|diffserv|--------->|L2    |--------->|diffserv|------>
        | router | 802.1p   |switch| 802.1p   | router | 802.1p
        ---------- priority -------- priority ---------- priority

A second case exists where packets coming into the network are arriving
from a non-diffserv enabled device and no DSCP exists with in the

                                                                [Page 6]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

packet, but an 802.1p tag does exist. In the case where the diffserv
device has the ability to set a DSCP in the packet, the diffserv router
can map the layer 2 tag into a DSCP value. The PIB supports a mapping
table that can be used to map from the layer 2 tag to a DSCP value.
This mapping would be configured to apply to those ports where the
upstream device marks packets using a L2 802.1p tag as shown in the
figure below.

        ----------          ------------ DSCP
     -->| L2     |--------->| diffserv |------->
     -->| switch | 802.1p   |  router  | 802.1p
        ---------- priority ------------ priority

Alternatively, the diffserv router can have policies applied to it that
cause it to reclassify the incoming packet using a MF classifier,
ignoring the incoming 802.1p tag.

5.  Summary of the PIB Modules

This section gives a brief summary of the top-level groups in the three
modules defined in this document.

Device Configuration Group
     This group contains device configuration information.  This
     configuration is either set by management or reflects the physical
     configuration of the device.

QoS Interface Group
     This group is used to indicate to the PDP the types of interface
     configured on the PEP.  Note that this group indicates the types of
     interfaces, not the configuration of each and every interface on
     the device.

QoS Metering Group
     This group contains configuration of meters.  These meters can then
     be used to by target classes to specify metering policy.

QoS Action Group
     This group contains the policies that define the action to be taken
     after the result of the classification and metering. This group
     also contains the policies that associate the classifiers, meters
     and actions.

                                                                [Page 7]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

IP Classification and Policing Group
     This group contains the policies that define the IP classifier
     elements.

802 Classification and Policing Group
     This group contains the policies that define the IEEE 802
     classifier elements.

6.  PIB Operational Overview

This section provides an operation overview of how the three modules are
used in concert to provide policy to the PEP.

After initial PEP to PDP communication setup, using [COPS-PR] for
example, the PEP will provide to the PDP the PIB Policy Rule Classes
(PRCs), interface types, and interface type capabilities it supports.

The PRCs supported by the PEP are reported to the PDP in the PRC Support
Table, qosPrcSupportTable.  Each instance of the qosPrcSupportTable
class indicates a PRC that the PEP understands and for which the PDP can
send class instances as part of the policy information.

The interface types the PEP supports are reported to the PDP in the
Interface Type Table, qosInterfaceTypeTable.  Each instance of this
class describes the characteristics of an interface type.  Each
interface type is identified by a role combination.  Each interface
type's inherent capability is reported to the PDP using the Interface
Type Table.  Examples of interface capabilities are classification,
policing, dropping, queuing, and shaping.  An interface type is
associated with a queue set which indicates the number of queues that
interface supports and its queuing disciplines.

The PDP, with knowledge of the PEP's capabilities, will provide the PEP
with:

 (1)   Administration domain policy information in
            qosIfDscpAssignmentTable
            qos802DscpMappingTable
            qos802CosToDscpTable

 (2)   Interface type and role specific IP policy information in
            qosIpAceTable
            qosIpAclDefinitionTable
            qosActionTable

                                                                [Page 8]


QoS Policy Information Base                                    June 1999

            qosTargetTable
            qosMeterTable

 (3)   Interface type and role specific IEEE 802 policy information in
            qos802AceTable
            qos802AclDefinitionTable

Instances of the qosTargetTable define how the Traffic Conditioning
Elements are combined into Traffic Conditioning Blocks, as described in
[MODEL].  Each instance of the qosTargetTable applies to an interface
type defined by its roles and direction (ingress or egress).  This is
pictured in the following diagram where the InterfaceRoles X, and Y
would be used by the network device to associate the traffic
conditioning block with the interfaces needing each of thess policies.

              Figure 7.1  Diffserv PIB Table Relationships

Notice in the above diagram, IEEE 802 type classifiers are intermixed
with the IP type classifiers, sharing the same pool of Traffic
Conditioning Elements.  The qosTargetTable allows use of heterogeneous
classifiers with same instance of qosMeterTable.  Using IP and IEEE 802
classifiers together is just one example.  Other types of classifiers
may be used heterogeneously.

After receiving the PIB, the PEP will associate the Classifier, Meter
and Action with the corresponding interfaces supporting the specific
interface type and roles.

    DESCRIPTION
        "A textual convention for an attribute that is an integer
        index of a class.  It is used for attributes that exist
        for the purpose of providing a policy rule instance with
        a unique instance identifier.

        For any instance identifier that refers to another policy
        rule instance, that other policy instance must exist.
        Furthermore, it is an error to try to delete a policy rule
        instance that is referred to by another instance without
        first deleting the referencing instance.

        Class instances of this type need not be contiguous."

    STATUS         current
    DESCRIPTION
        "This object identifies the queuing discipline that is
        associated with the specified queue. Several general
        purpose and well-known queuing disciplines are supported
        by this attribute. Queuing disciplines that differ from
        those that are supported by this object are specified
        by setting this attribute to other(1) and providing
        the object identifier that represents the different
        queuing paradigm in the qosIfQueueExtDiscipline object.

        A value of fifo(2) indicates that the queue is serviced
        on a first-in-first-out (FIFO) basis. This discipline is
        generally employed when only a single queue is available
        for a given interface.

        A value of pq(3) indicates that the queue is serviced
        using a priority queuing discipline. This technique is
        used when several queues are available for a given
        interface. Each queue is assigned a priority and queues
        are serviced in order of priority. Higher priority queues
        are completely drained before lower priority queues are
        serviced.

        A value of fq(4) indicates that the queue is serviced
        using a fair queuing discipline. This technique is used
        when several queues are available for a given interface.
        Each queue is treated equally and is serviced in a
        round-robin fashion.

        A value of wfq(5) indicates that the queue is serviced
        using a weighted fair queuing discipline. This technique is
        used when several queues are available for a given interface.
        Each queue is serviced based on queue weights which determine
        the scheduling and frequency of queue servicing. Queues that
        are assigned a greater weight are implicitly provided with
        more bandwidth.

        Note that the processing disciplines for all of the queues
        in a given set must be considered when trying to establish
        a processing profile for a given interface."

        "This object is used to provide an additional level of

        are serviced using a mix of queuing disciplines. This
        object can be used to specify, for example, the order in
        which queues will be serviced when priority queuing is
        used. It also supports the ability to describe the
        servicing hierarchy when a hybrid queuing scheme, such
        as priority queuing coupled with weighted fair queuing,
        is used.

        Queue service priority is assigned such that a lower
        service order value indicates a higher priority. For
        example, a priority queue with a value of 1 will be
        serviced (i.e., drained) before another priority queue
        with a service order value of 2.

        Note that multiple queues that are logically associated,

        based on the queuing discipline that is being employed,
        will be assigned the same service order value.  Under
        this scenario, other parameters that are related to the
        queuing discipline determine the order of queue servicing
        (e.g., queue drain size is used for 'wfq').

        For example, an interface that is associated with a queue
        set supporting two priority queues and three queues that
        are serviced using WFQ would be modeled as follows:

          Q Index  Q Discipline  Q Drain Size  Q Service Order
             22         pq(1)         -              1
             23         pq(1)         -              2
             24        wfq(3)        500             3
             25        wfq(3)        350             3
             26        wfq(3)        150             3

        The queue set presented in this example would service
        all queued traffic in queue 22 first, followed by all of
        the queued traffic in queue 23. Next the queued traffic
        in queues 24 through 26 would be serviced in a round
        robin fashion with queue 24 receiving 50% of the available
        bandwidth, queue 25 receiving 35% of the available
        bandwidth and queue 26 receiving 15% of the available
        bandwidth. This example is presented for expository
        purposes and has been simplified accordingly.

        Note that, in this example, queues 24, 25 and 26 form a
        queue cluster. Members of a queue cluster are all assigned
        the same qosIfQueueServiceOrder as there are tightly
        coupled. The qosIfQueueDrainSize attribute is used to
        determine the additional processing characteristics of
        the individual queues in a cluster."

        IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tag in data link layer frames must
        be considered when determining if a given frame
        matches this 802 ACE entry.

        A value of 'taggedOnly(1)' means that only frames
        containing a VLAN tag with a non-Null VID (i.e., a
        VID in the range 1..4094) will be considered a match.

        A value of 'priorityTaggedPlus(2)' means that only
        frames containing a VLAN tag, regardless of the value
        of the VID, will be considered a match.

        A value of 'untaggedOnly(3)' indicates that only
        untagged frames will match this filter component.

        The presence of a VLAN tag is not taken into
        consideration in terms of a match if the value is
        'ignoreTag(4)'."

        (0x0800), 'ARP' (0x0806) and 'IPX' (0x8137).

        Setting the qos802AceEtherTypeMin object to -1 indicates
        that EtherType data should not be considered during traffic
        classification.

        Note that the position of the EtherType field depends on
        the underlying frame format. For Ethernet-II encapsulation,
        the EtherType field follows the 802 MAC source address. For
        802.2 LLC/SNAP encapsulation, the EtherType value follows the
        Organization Code field in the 802.2 SNAP header. The value
        that is tested with regard to this filter component therefore
        depends on the data link layer frame format being used. If
        this 802 ACE component is active when there is no EtherType
        field in a frame (e.g., 802.2 LLC), a match is implied."

        compared. A test for equality is performed when determining
        if a match exists between the data in a data link layer
        frame and the value of this 802 ACE component. Multiple
        values may be set at one time such that potentially several
        different user priority values may match this 802 ACE
        component.

        Setting all of the bits that are associated with this

8.  Security Considerations

The information contained in a PIB when transported by the COPS protocol
[COPS-PR] may be sensitive, and its function of provisioning a PEP
requires that only authorized communication take place.  The use of
IPSEC between PDP and PEP, as described in [COPS], provides the
necessary protection against these threats.
