I have data LIFs on 10GbE connections. In the meantime, we need to use the 10GbE for NDMP backups as well. I am concerned about NDMP backups traffic can saturate the 10GbE connections and cause service interruptions on the data traffic. I look into network management guide, it mentions about "QoS marking" can be set to prioritize *outgoing* traffic per IP Space. My questions are:
- Unfortunately, there is only one IPspace "Default" in the configuration.It looks like if I change the value DSCP values, it will affect all?
- It seems to me smaller value means higher priority? I don't see it mentioned in the guide.
- Currently all protocols have it disabled. What happens if I enable only NDMP with lower priority such as 50? Is it sufficient to ensure it won't impact CIFS/NFS/iSCSI traffic?
