This project is a Zenoss extension (ZenPack) primarily intended for ISPs which extensively use different QoS on their network (like MPLS), and need to know statistics by each class.

About Cisco Base QOS on Cisco site

This is prerelease but all main functionality work. Almost think i need change or add write in the code as TODO or FIXME


Because ServicePolicy bound to Interface (IpInterface), installation create additional relation between cbServicePolicy and IpInterface. ZenPack contain automated modeler which grab QOS Object configuration from device. From this configuration modeler create particular class instance and create hierarchy of that objects (see more about nested object in cisco site).

In this release i collect only two statistic item PostPolicyBitRate and PostPolicyDropRate. From code point of view each statistic item is different component, but from user point of view, this item belong to cbServicePolicy and statistics should be visible as single item (for example on single graph). In this case cbServicePolicy work not only as container but also provide internal API to gather statistic from his child.

Known issues
