Data type Range Default value
REG_DWORD 0 - 7 3


Determines whether the general information service type (SERVICETYPE_GENERALINFO) is mapped to the controlled load or guaranteed service level. The system uses this mapping when an interface does not support RSVP signaling or when RSVP signaling is disabled on an interface.

QoS senders usually specify SERVICETYPE_GENERALINFO to indicate that they can support both controlled load and guaranteed service capability to the receiver.

Controlled load approximates the behavior of best-effort service in unloaded (not heavily loaded or congested) conditions. Guaranteed service guarantees the maximum limit on delay.

Value Meaning
0 - 3 Map SERVICETYPE_GENERALINFO traffic to the controlled load service level.
4 - 7 Map SERVICETYPE_GENERALINFO traffic to the guaranteed service level.

Note Image Note

To determine this setting for all QoS interfaces, add the MapGeneralInfo entry to the Qossp services subkey. If this entry appears in both the Qossp subkey and an <Interface-name>\Qos subkey, the value in the <Interface-name>\Qos subkey takes precedence over the value in the Qossp subkey when configuring that interface.

Windows 2000 does not add this entry to the registry. You can add it by editing the registry or by using a program that edits the registry.
