QoS templates are QoS settings that can be applied to a network path when it is created or edited. There are a number of default QoS templates available but you can also create custom templates.

Apply a QoS template to a network path

For a network path to use QoS settings within test packets it sends, a QoS settings template must be applied to the network path. There are a few different ways to do this: during network path creation, by updating the configuration of a single network path, by updating the configuration of one or more network paths.

To apply a QoS template to network path during path creation:

  1. Begin creating a network path.
  2. In Step 3: Customize Settings, click the QoS Settings field and select a QoS template from the dropdown menu.
  3. Continue the network path creation.
    • The network path created is configured to use the specified QoS template.

To apply a QoS template to a single network path:

  1. Navigate to Delivery > Network Paths.
  2. For the network path you want to edit, select > Configure.
  3. In Step 2: Customize Settings, click the QoS Settings field and select a QoS template from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click Save.
    • The selected path is updated to use the specified QoS template.

To apply a QoS template to one or more network paths:

  1. Navigate to Delivery > Network Paths.
  2. Select the network paths you want to update.
  3. From the Action drop-down, select QoS Settings.
  4. Click the QoS Setting field and select a QoS template from the dropdown menu.
  5. Click Preview.
  6. Confirm the network paths you want to update.
  7. Click OK.
    • The selected paths are updated to use the specified QoS template.

Create a custom QoS template

There are a number of default QoS templates available but you can also create custom templates if necessary. There are a few different ways to do this: during network path creation, when updating the configuration of a single network path, when updating the configuration of one or more network paths.

To create a custom QoS template during network path creation:

  1. Begin creating a network path.
  2. In Step 3: Customize Settings, next to the QoS Settings field, click Add New QoS Settings.
  3. Specify the new QoS template settings.
  4. Continue the network path creation.
    • The network path created is configured to use the new QoS template.

To create a custom QoS template when updating the configuration of a single network path:

  1. Navigate to Delivery > Network Paths.
  2. For the network path you want to edit, select > Configure.
  3. In Step 2: Customize Settings, next to the QoS Settings field, click Add New QoS Settings.
  4. Specify the new QoS template settings.
  5. Click Save.
    • The selected path is updated to use the new QoS template.

To create a custom QoS template when updating the configuration of one or more network paths:

  1. Navigate to Delivery > Network Paths.
  2. Select the network paths you want to update.
  3. From the Action drop-down, select QoS Settings.
  4. In the QoS Setting field, enter the name of the new QoS template.
