DSCP Per-Hop Behaviours: Scavenger Class

The scavenger class is for providing less than best-effort importance to services. They are typically used for applications that provide little to no contribution of the business objectives of an organisation, such as entertainment: video streaming, peer-to-peer, gaming.

Whilst the intention of the scavenger class is to provide less than best effort importance to services, it actually can’t as CS0 utilises the lowest DSCP value of 000 000.

Scavenger traffic actually utilises CS1, or 001 000.
