This MIB module defines managed objects that support the policy source configuration of Quality of Service (QoS) on the device. Terminology : Common Open Policy Service (COPS) : A client/server model for supporting policy control over QoS Signaling Protocols and provisioned QoS resource management, etc. COPS is a query and response protocol that can be used to exchange policy information between a policy server (Policy Decision Point or PDP) and its clients (Policy Enforcement Points or PEPs). Policy Information Base (PIB) : The database of policy information stored in the COPS client device. QoS : The method which attempts to ensure that the network requirements of different applications can be met by giving preferential forwarding treatment to some traffic, perhaps at the expense of other traffic. QoS policy : a set of parameters used to achieve QoS purpose. The device uses these parameters in flow classification, flow scheduling, flow policing and codepoint mutation. RSVP : Resource Reservation Protocol. RSVP is a signaling mechanism that the application will use to signal parameters to the network, so that network can assign QoS for the application data stream. COPS-PR : a COPS client type which supports device's provisioning of QoS policy. COPS-RSVP : a COPS client type which supports device's outsourcing of QoS policy (RSVP).

Revised version from CISCO-QOS-CONFIG-MIB. The original OID is assigned to CISCO-QOS-CONFIG-MIB and then after discussing with people in COPS group, we decided to change the name of the MIB. And also adding some objects to reflect the difference between users' QoS policy configuration and runtime QoS policy configuration.
