@alex-gómez said in Classification and making in QoS:
Hi Ronnie, thanks for your reply. I am still confused, specially because reading the OCG in the section about QoS Classification and markin, it says that complex things like marking needs to be carried out early in the life of the packet so I assume that it is close to the source, but where is classification in this process, I mean, Is first classfication or marking and about your reply I guess that marking is the closest to the source, right?
So the logic is that for us to mark it, it has to be classified (identified) first. This is what allows to treat the packets differently than all the packets that flow through a device. So just about everything today happens directly at the interface level. So for the most part the classification is at the switch level using ACLs, which combined into a policy-map.
