CCNA 4 v6.0 Chapter 6 Exam Answers

    1. When QoS is implemented in a converged network, which two factors can be controlled to improve network performance for real-time traffic? (Choose two.)packet addressing
      packet routing
      link speed

      Delay is the latency between a sending and receiving device. Jitter is the variation in the delay of the received packets. Both delay and jitter need to be controlled in order to support real-time voice and video traffic.
    2. A network engineer performs a ping test and receives a value that shows the time it takes for a packet to travel from a source to a destination device and return. Which term describes the value?bandwidth

      Latency refers to the time it takes for a packet to travel from a source device to a destination device. Jitter is the variation in the latency values of received packets. Bandwidth is the measurement of how much traffic is transmitted in a single second. Priority is the preferential treatment of specific classes of traffic.
    3. What are two characteristics of voice traffic? (Choose two.)Dropped voice packets are not retransmitted.*
      Voice traffic requires at least 384 kbs of bandwidth.
      Voice traffic latency should not exceed 150 ms.*
      Voice traffic is unpredictable and inconsistent.
      Voice traffic consumes lots of network resources.

      Voice traffic does not consume a lot of network resources, such as bandwidth. However, it is very sensitive to delay and dropped packets cannot be retransmitted. For good voice quality, the amount of latency should always be less than 150 milliseconds.
    4. How does a Cisco router using tail drop handle congestion when a traffic queue becomes full?The router will remove the packet in the front of the queue, move all other packets forward, and insert the just arrived packet at the end.
      The router will drop any packet that arrives at the end of the queue.*
      The router will remove the most recent data placed in the queue to make space for an arriving packet.
      The router will only drop non delay-sensitive data that is close to the end of the queue.

      Tail drop is also known as packet drop and is used by a router to discard any packet that arrives at the tail end of a queue. Tail drop treats all traffic equally and does not differentiate between delay-sensitive data and other traffic.
    5. For classifying packets into classes with CBWFQ, what is the purpose of configuring a maximum packet limit for a class?to control the maximum number of packets that can be received each second on an ingress interface
      to control the maximum number of packets allowed in a single queue*
      to control the maximum number of packets that can be forwarded each second on an egress interface
      to control the maximum number of packets allowed to be discarded

      The maximum packet limit characteristic is the maximum number of packets allowed to accumulate in the queue for a specific class that is defined using CBWFQ.
    6. A network engineer is selecting a QoS method to control congestion on a VPN tunnel link between the headquarters site and a branch office. Which queuing method cannot be used to classify and control VPN traffic?FIFO

      Weighted fair queuing (WFQ) does not support tunneling and encryption because these features modify the packet content information required by WFQ for classification.
    7. An administrator has mastered the use of access control lists (ACLs) and wants to deploy QoS by defining different traffic classes through the use of ACLs. Which queuing method provides this functionality?CBWFQ*

      Class-based weighted fair queuing (CBWFQ) provides support for user-defined traffic classes. CBWFQ allows an administrator to define traffic classes based on match criteria such as protocols, access control lists (ACLs), and input interfaces.
    8. Which queuing algorithm has only a single queue and treats all packets equally?LLQ

      FIFO queuing sends packets out an interface in the order that they had arrived and does not make a decision about packet priority. All packets are treated equally.
    9. A network administrator is deploying QoS with the ability to provide a special queue for voice traffic so that voice traffic is forwarded before network traffic in other queues. Which queuing method would be the best choice?FIFO

      Low latency queuing (LLQ) allows delay-sensitive data, such as voice traffic, to be defined in a strict priority queue (PQ) and to always be sent first before any packets in any other queue are forwarded.
    10. What are two characteristics of DiffServ QoS model? (Choose two.)can divide network traffic into classes based on business requirements*
      the easiest QoS model to deploy
      delivers end to end QoS
      uses the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) to signal QoS requirements
      groups all TCP flows into a single class*

      The DiffServ QoS model is commonly used in modern networks and is the easiest QoS model to deploy. TCP flows are grouped into a single class. Network devices are setup to service multiple classes of traffic where each class of traffic has different QoS requirements.
    11. What are two characteristics of the best-effort QoS model? (Choose two.)It treats all network packets in the same way.*
      It allows end hosts to signal their QoS needs to the network.
      It uses a connection-oriented approach with QoS.
      It provides preferential treatment for voice packets.
      It does not provide a delivery guarantee for packets.*

      The best-effort QoS model provides no guarantees and it is commonly used on the Internet. The best-effort QoS model treats all network packets in the same way.
    12. What role do network devices play in the IntServ QoS model?Network devices use QoS on a hop-by-hop basis to provide excellent scalability.
      Network devices ensure that resources are available before traffic is allowed to be sent by a host through the network.*
      Network devices are configured to service multiple classes of traffic and handle traffic as it may arrive.
      Network devices provide a best-effort approach to forwarding traffic.

      The IntServ QoS model uses resource reservation to guarantee bandwidth and packet-loss rates from end to end. IntServ uses a connection-oriented approach to ensure that available resources are sufficient in the network for the traffic to have a specific level of QoS.
    13. Which QoS model is very resource intensive and provides the highest guarantee of QoS?IntServ*
      soft QoS

      The IntServ QoS model uses resource reservation and admission control mechanisms to schedule network resources.
    14. In QoS models, which type of traffic is commonly provided the most preferential treatment over all other application traffic?voice traffic*
      web traffic
      file transfers

      Voice traffic from IP phones is commonly provided preferential treatment over all other application traffic such as email, web traffic, and file transfers.
    15. What are two approaches to prevent packet loss due to congestion on an interface? (Choose two.)Decrease buffer space.
      Disable queuing mechanisms.
      Increase link capacity.*
      Drop lower-priority packets.*
      Prevent bursts of traffic.

      There are three approaches to prevent sensitive traffic from being dropped:
      Increase link capacity to ease or prevent congestion.
      Guarantee enough bandwidth and increase buffer space to accommodate bursts of traffic from fragile flows.
      Prevent congestion by dropping lower-priority packets before congestion occurs.
    16. What two fields are available in IPv4 and IPv6 headers to mark packets for QoS? (Choose two.)Type of Service*
      Traffic Class*
      VLAN ID
      Class of Service

      IPv4 uses an 8-bit Type of Service field to mark packets at Layer 3 and IPv6 uses an 8-bit Traffic Class field to mark packets at Layer 3. The fields are used by receiving devices to forward the packets based on the appropriate assigned QoS policy.
    17. What is the benefit of deploying Layer 3 QoS marking across an enterprise network?Layer 3 marking can be carried in the 802.1Q fields.
      Layer 3 marking can carry the QoS information end-to-end.*
      Layer 3 marking can be used to carry non-IP traffic.
      Layer 3 marking can carry QoS information on switches that are not IP aware.

      Marking traffic at Layer 2 or Layer 3 is very important and will affect how traffic is treated in a network using QoS.
      Layer 2 marking of frames can be performed for non-IP traffic.
      Layer 2 marking of frames is the only QoS option available for switches that are not “IP aware.”
      Layer 3 marking will carry the QoS information end-to-end.
    18. Which QoS technology provides congestion avoidance by allowing TCP traffic to be throttled before buffers become full and tail drops occur?traffic policing
      first-in, first-out
      weighted random early detection*

      The weighted random early detection (WRED) algorithm provides congestion avoidance on network interfaces by allowing TCP traffic to be throttled before buffers are exhausted. This maximizes network use and TCP-based application performance while minimizing tail drop.
    19. Refer to the exhibit. As traffic is forwarded out an egress interface with QoS treatment, which congestion avoidance technique is used? traffic shaping
      weighted random early detection
      classification and marking
      traffic policing*

      Traffic shaping buffers excess packets in a queue and then forwards the traffic over increments of time, which creates a smoothed packet output rate. Traffic policing drops traffic when the amount of traffic reaches a configured maximum rate, which creates an output rate that appears as a saw-tooth with crests and troughs.
    20. Which QoS model uses the DSCP bits to mark packets and provides 64 possible classes of service?best-effort

      The DiffServ model uses 6-bits known as the DiffServ Code Point (DSCP) bits to mark traffic and offers a maximum of 64 possible classes of service. Diffserv-aware routers can then implement per-hop behaviors (PHBs) that can control packet forwarding based on the specified class of service.
    21. Which QoS technique retains excess packets in a separate queue for later transmission?classifying

      As network traffic exits an interface it is queued and then shaped to smooth out the packet output rate. Classification and marking should occur early on to identify traffic and classify how the traffic should be treated.
