Setting Up Router Quality of Service

I need to set limits to specific IP's or devices in my house using the internet. I heard that "Quality of Service" on the router was the best way to go. I checked it out on my router but it is very confusing. I have no idea how to set this up and I work with computers for a living. Can anyone help me configure this?

  • Quality of Service with WRT610N and Vonage

    I'm trying to get Quality of Service working with my WRT610N and my Vonage device.  The WRT is connected directly to my cable modem, and the Vonage device is connected to Ethernet port 1.  I've set up the Vonage's MAC address on the QoS tab to be priority "High" (done by selecting the "Voice Device" on the Category dropdown).  Additionally, I've set my Vonage options (on the Vonage website's page for my account) to use the highest bitrate (90 kbps, I think).  No other QoS settings have been made.
    However, the router doesn't seem to be enforcing QoS at all.  If I do any kind of surfing at all (dragging around on Google maps to load new satellite pages is a good test), the voice quality on an ongoing Vonage call becomes very choppy.  Do I have to do something else to ensure that the Vonage device gets highest priority?
    Go to Solution.

    Yup, it should work. Been working with these devices lately and the only way to get a good connection from it is by connecting the Modem and the VONAGE then your router. COMCAST is alsready using smart modems so it should always recognize any devices connected to the modem. You can also try leaving the devices OFF for a minute and turn ON the devices, first the modem and wait for another minute then your VONAGE and wait for another minute and then your router.
    Please post if it worked on not...

  • Enterprise Services & Managing Quality of Service

    the documents published recently regarding ESA are pretty much aligned with the general idea to follow the idea of SOA. We talk a lot about enterprise level functionality and the reuse of high-level patterns being developed. However there is not much talking (yet) about the managing and monitoring of those enterprise services. Eg. Enterprise Services without well defined service-level-agreements attached to them and a platform supporting to manage&monitor (quality of service) these services tend to be applied just like any other application-service.
    The question raising here: Where (based on what technology/platform) does SAP want to manage such SLAs allowing also business managers to understand what quality of service is being provided to their business functions. So far I haven´t spotted anything supporting that layer...(in the sense of "Click on an enterprise service, eg. define alert if response is greater than x sec or n service call failed, category of enterprise service...)

    It is never any fun to say "It depends".  But that is the way I feel I have to start this response.  I think your question does hit the next level of required detail in an ESA beyond the exposure of services to the enterprise.  Immediately after exposing services, basic SLA's and monitoring becomes critical. 
    There are in fact monitoring capabilities in XI 3.0 that should give us the first round of basic "Service Management".  XI also offers a reasonable way to conduct service failover and redundancy by providing a both routing and queueing.  I do think the issue is Service Management (encompassing SLA's, monitoring, alerting, failover, etc.).  XI is where I think it could be done most consistently, but we are not all the way there.  I will do some digging and get back to you on this with an update.
    Each of these tasks could be done as Infrastructure Services supported out of WebAS 6.40.  This might not be a bad move for the next 6-12 months.  If these services are modeled after the standards, then a simple form of SLA monitoring, logging, and alerting should be pretty easy to create and maintain.  It is pretty straight forward to say that all your service calls go through a set of basic infrastructure services to provide the visability you are requesting.
    Excellent question, that deserves a better answer.  I will see what I can find out.

  • Quality of service in Receiver file/ftp adapter (SAP PI 7.1)?

        We are building an IDoc to File scenario in SAP PI 7.1, where a single incoming idoc will create three different output files. Also files must be created in target server in a specific order.
        Our first idea to ensure that files would be created following a specific order was that Message mapping (in Java) build target payload with all three files following expected sequence.
        In addition, receiver file/ftp adapter is setup with a dynamic variable to create each file with a different filename adding also timestamp.
        Testing the scenario, we see that three files are created in target server but when we sort them by creation date, it seems they don't follow always same sequence.
        Sometimes adapter creates File1, File2, File3; next time it created File2, File1, File3 and so on.
        Our problem is that files must be created always with a specific order and we cannot use BPM. Does anyone know if a receiver file/ftp adapter can be setup to create files following specific sequence (EOIO)?
        I know that sender file/ftp adapter can be setup with a quality of service, but I didn't find anything similar for Receiver file/ftp adapter.
        Suggestions will be welcome.
    Kind Regards,

         First, thanks all of you for your quick answers. They were helpful because we learnt a new configuration setting.
         We tried your suggestions but they didn't really fix our problem.
         Finally interface has been re-designed and we will not have to apply this logic, so no issue from our side.
         However, let me continue with this topic in case that somebody else will have the same issue, then it will be able to review this thread.
         When adapter created the files in the target directory (windows server), files had the expected timestamp in each filename. However, if we sorted windows directory contents by "Date Creation", files were sorted different that timestamp shows in the filename.
         For example, adapter created following files:
         But when we sorted windows folder contents, files were sorted as follows:
         It seems that timestamp was pre-assigned by the adapter, but when adapter created the files, it did it with a temporary name and finally assigns the filename. If a file size was bigger than other, maybe it takes more time and windows creation date is higher.
         If so, it means that adapter is not following same instructions as itu2019s indicated in "maintain order at runtime" checkbox.
         Do you know if there is any way where we can push also the order in the adapter as we did in interface determination?

  • EOIO Quality of Service

    Hi guys,
    We have developed a File-XI-Idoc scenario, which works fine.
    The problem is that we want each file that is found in the folder where XI reads files, to be processed first and the corresponding Idoc that is produced from the mapping to be posted in receiver R/3 system first.
    In order to achieve that we have used EOIO QoS in processing parameters of sender file communication channel. Although, files are processed by XI one by one, since they are put in the same queue, it is not guaranteed that Idocs are posted to R/3 in the same sequence,
    We had a case that Idocs were posted exactly at the same time in receiver R/3 system and the one that should be processed second was processed first. The second Idoc (that should be processed first) was locked due to concurrent modification of the same material.
    Is there something else that I can do in receiver Idoc adapter, for example??

    Use the Queue Processing option of the receiver Idoc channel
    Queue Processing
    If the function module IDOC_INBOUND_IN_QUEUE is to be used, set the relevant indicator. It is used for IDocs that are serialized by queues (quality of service is EOIO). This module is only available in SAP Web AS 6.40 and higher. If it is not available, the function module IDOC_INBOUND_ASYNCHRONOUS is called. The indicator only takes effect in SAP systems Releases 4.0 and higher. Calls for the queue processing function module are placed in the qRFC queue.

  • RFC TO SOAP  - Quality of Service

    i see that my RFC to SOAP test functioning properly. But in Exactly Once mode. In RFC Sender adapter and SOAP Receiver adapter there is no configuration tab to change "Quality of service". 
    Is it possible to change the mode?
    Kind Regards,

    It is not possible to set the QoS at Channel leve for RFC receiver.
    Have a look at this thread: tRFC & qRFC
    for SOAP, look at this discussion: Re: In what QOS does the receiver SOAP adapter work BE or EO?

  • How does the quality of service in India compare to the United States?

    I am currently in India and 12 hours from the closest Apple service center in Delhi.  After the monsoon rains started my computer started acting up.  At first some keys seemed to stick and I was able to solve the problem by attaching a USB keyboard.  Lately the computer started crashing and then having trouble starting up again (an internet search suggests this could be a problem with the RAM).  If I left the computer for a while it would start up and operate well for a bit but eventually crash again. 
    I took the computer into a computer repair shop here and he said that I should wait (3 months) until I go back to the United States rather than go through the trouble of traveling to Delhi to get the computer repaired.  He also said that the quality of repairs is much better in the US.  For example, in India they will put in second hard refurbished hardware whereas in the US they will use new hardware.  The repairs in India will also take much longer than it would in the US.  He recommended I get a cheap PC from him to use while I am here and get my mac repaired when i get back to the United States, he would then buy the computer back when I left.
    I was wondering if anybody could share their experience or knowledge of the quality of service in India.  Thank you.

    And another quote from the fine manual:
    Re Slideshow:
    Rendering Preview Images
    Aperture renders preview images in four situations:
    When a library is upgraded—provided that the “Create previews for existing images” checkbox is selected in the Welcome to Aperture dialog
    When an image is imported, or a version is created, rotated, or adjusted—provided that the Maintain Previews item is selected in the Library Action pop-up menu (with a gear icon)
    When you Control-click the library, a project, or an image selection and choose Update Previews from the shortcut menu
    Immediately before a slideshow, if the previews are not up to date, and the slideshow preset uses the Best quality setting
    When rendering a group of preview images, Aperture uses the current application preference settings for compression quality and picture size, not the settings that were specified when preview rendering began. For example, if you have the quality set to 6, and then halfway through rendering you change the setting to 8, the previews that have not yet been rendered will be compressed at setting 8. Previously rendered previews are unaffected.
    So, a high quality slideshow will require high quality previews, and indeed Aperture will render previews before rendering a slideshow, if the preview quality is not sufficient.

  • Changing Quality of Service in Receiver Adapter

    We have a scenario where hundreds of messages for the same interface is sent to XI and written to one file on the receiver side.  We do not want to change the QOS (Quality of Service) to EOIO (Exactly Once in Order) on the sender side nor do we want to use BPM due to performance issues.
    Is there any way to change the QOS to EOIO after the mapping is complete?
    I tried changing the QOS (DeliverySemantics) using a adapter module on the receiver adapter.  In the audit log, I can see that the QOS has been changed to EOIO and assigned to the correct ConversationId, but the messages does not follow the EOIO process.
    Any help is great appreciated.
    Best Regards,

    Here is more detail on the scenario. 
    Hundreds of messages come into XI from R/3.  One message is split into multiple messages by using the Extended Interface Determination.  These messages are written to a file (each message has its own file).  The file adapter is set to append. 
    The issue we are facing is that when hundreds of messages are processed simultaneously, it triggers an error when attempting to write to the file (locking issues).  It then has to wait and retry, which adds to total processing time.  Due to the time sensitivity of these interfaces and the errors that are raised, we would like to change the QOS to EOIO on the receiver side (when it writes to the file) so that it does not have to wait and retry.
    The Maintain Order at Runtime is checked in the Interface Determination.  Once it gets to the adapter framework to write to the file, it has a QOS of Exactly Once, which is carried over from the sender.
    We do not want to change the QOS on the sender side, but only on the receiver side.
    Any thoughts?
    Best Regards,

  • Quality Of Service (BE,EOIO)...FIFO

    SAP XI has the concept of Quality of Service wherein they have BE, EOIO,EO.
    Please can anyone tell me is this associated to a queue or a message. Also, if asociated to a Queue, where in SAO can we do this setting of making a Queue BE or EOIO.
    And how do we associate a message to a particular queue?
    Do we have the concept of this realted to Quality of service??
    Please can anyone clear my doubt.

    I don't see any options available in RFC Sender adapter and in HTTP Receiver adapter to select the quality of service.
    Do you know how to select that option? I know that once I select that option I need to mention a queue name.
    We are at XI 3.0 SP14.
    Please let me know ASAP.

  • Compare Routing action versus Service Callout action versus Publish action?

    hi all,
    Apologies if this is a stupid question, but i throw my hands up and admit my ignorance (I'm mainly a core Java developer; OSB/ALSB is kind of a sideline for me). That said...
    I've used OSB (actually ALSB) on a couple SOA projects within the last 3 years. on my previous projects, we mainly only ever used Routing actions. I'm now working on a 3rd project that also uses OSB. But on this new project, they mainly only ever use Service Callout actions and Publish actions.
    My question is: what are the criteria for choosing between one or the other (Routing action or Service Callout action or Publish action)?
    What does one do that the others can't? I've RTFM. But it still isn't obvious to me. Please, can you fill in the gaps in my knowledge?
    Thanks in advance for your time.

    My question is: what are the criteria for choosing between one or the other (Routing action or Service Callout action or Publish action)?Routing Action - Routing action can be created inside a Route Node only and Route Node is the last node in a request processing. A Route Node indicates that Request Processing will end here and Response Processing will begin. You can not have any node after Route Node in the message flow.
    Service Callout - Service Callout is used in real time request-response scenarios (for sync response). If you have a use case where you need to call one or multiple real time request-response services (like sync web-services) then you may use Service Callout action in the message flow. Being a synchronus call, the thread gets blocked until a response is returned from target service.
    Publish Action - Publish action is used for Request only scenarios where you don't expect a response back. The nature of Publish action (sync or async) will depend upon the target service you are invoking. If you are invoking an external service through a business service then Publish action with Quality of Service(QoS) as "Best Effort" (default) will work like fire and forget and thread won't get blocked (async call). If you are invoking a local proxy service (proxy with transport protocol as "local") from another proxy using publish action then it would be a blocking call (synchronus call) and thread will get blocked untill the processing of local proxy finishes.
    Hope it helps.

  • Telstra Gateway Max aka Technicolor TG799vac lacks basic Quality of Service

    Hi, I have recently moved to a plan that included the Telstra Gateway Max for free, and have also recently opted-in to Telstra Air which I think is wonderful. Problem. These Technicolor TG799vac modem/routers which Telstra is providing (are actually a very high quality, highly finished product), are missing 1 key feature. My plan also came with a free T-Box which I can watch Foxtel on T-Box, Presto, Bigpond TV, Bigpond Movies, and other great content. Except the Gateway Max does not have even basic "QoS" features. QoS is an acronym for Quality of Service. It provides that certain traffic on your local network can be marked as a higher priority than other less important content. For instance. VoIP (Voice over IP) usually has #1 priority, usually followed by video, and then other content like HTTP (normal downloads) and Bit Torrent etc are all just normal quality. "Wireless Multimedia Extensions (WME), also known as Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), is a Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability certification, based on the IEEE 802.11e standard." "It provides basic Quality of service (QoS) features to IEEE 802.11 networks." "WMM prioritizes traffic according to four Access Categories (AC) - voice, video, best effort, and background. However, it does not provide guaranteed throughput. It is suitable for well defined applications that require QoS, such as Voice over IP (VoIP) on Wi-Fi phones (VoWLAN)." This WMM standard is a highly important standard for modem routers because if I'm downloading some random large file on one computer which consumes all available bandwidth (speed), my T-Box instantly degrades and becomes unwatchable. My plan comes with unlimited calls anyway plus my mobile comes with unlimited calls on a Telstra competitor so I don't personally have any use for VoIP. My main concern is the lack of Quality of Service for video content. Given we now have Telstra Air I do wonder what happens when a guest user consumes all available bandwidth (speed) is that going to affect my T-Box negatively? I understand there is QoS built into Telstra Air such that the guest user cannot hog all your bandwidth (preference is given to the host customer over the guest customer) however that's as far as QoS goes with Telstra. I would urge Telstra to pass this post to their development team for consideration, because as it stands the only way for people to get QoS is to buy other non-Telstra modem routers. I can still probably plug Telstras Gateway Max into another modem router that does support QoS which is what I intend to do to solve the problem, but if they could look at addressing this issue the Gateway Max would be a very ideal, very professional modem router that I could recommend to everybody and not bother with the hassle of buying other non-Telstra modem routers.

    Telstra Air has built in QoS, there is a specific speed threshold that they can't pass. If your internet speed is too low it won't allow allow fast access to clients.
    The real truth is all those features are available on your modem but have been disabled by Telstra's firmware, Telstra wants to manage all of these areas so sadly there is nothing we can do

    From Adobe docs:
    "In the desktop profile of Adobe AIR, quality can be set to StageQuality.BEST or StageQuality.HIGH (and the default value is StageQuality.HIGH).

  • Quality of service

    I had internet services with verizon when i lived in new york and i absolutely loved it. The service was the best, the customer service was excellent. Now that I have moved to the Atlanta metro area there is no available coverage from you in this area. Are you planning on providing services in this area at anytime in the near future? If so you definitely will not have any competition, because the quality of service is horrible by all the providers in this area. HELP!
