I just checked a few 3550s and 3560s, and I don't see any evidence that 
they support CISCO-CLASS-BASED-QOS-MIB.  Walking ., I 
get nothing.  On our 6500s, walking ., I do get lots of 
data, but I don't see anything obvious in it that tells me which numbers 
go with which interfaces.

Is anyone actually making use of CISCO-CLASS-BASED-QOS-MIB on 3550s to 
graph/bill traffic passed after per-interface policing service policies 
are applied?
