Technical Summary
 
 The purpose of this document is to define an information model to
 describe the quality of service (QoS) mechanisms inherent in
 different network devices, including hosts.  Broadly speaking,
 these mechanisms describe the properties common to selecting and
 conditioning traffic through the forwarding path (datapath) of a
 network device.  This selection and conditioning of traffic in
 the datapath spans both major QoS architectures: Differentiated
 Services and Integrated Services.

 This documen should be used with the QoS Policy Information Model
 (QPIM) to model how policies can be defined to manage and configure
 the QoS mechanisms (i.e., the classification, marking, metering,
 dropping, queuing, and scheduling functionality) of devices.
 Together, these two drafts describe how to write QoS policy rules
 to configure and manage the QoS mechanisms present in the datapaths
 of devices.

 This document, as well as QPIM, are information models.  That is,
 they represent information independent of a binding to a specific
 type of repository. 

Working Group Summary
 
 The Working Group has consensus on this document to be published as
