qos and 2900/2520 Series

Hi everybody,

here my backgroud:

Location A:
ProCurve Switch 2900-48G (J9050A) Switch, vmware, Citrix Farm, Server, email Clients etc.

Location B:


Location A and Location B are connected with a 100MBit Ethernet-Connect line from a local carrier.

We syncronize our vmware storage from Location A to Location B with Veeam Backup.
This works fine. But while the backup process, the whole bandwith is used. The other application hangs.

For Citrix Session we need TCP/2598 and TCP/1498,

for EMail (Exchange), TCP/135, TCP/443 and high-ports.

Is it possible to priorize citrix apps and exchange apps on the switches?

best thanks

How about quick and dirty.....
Use VEEAM build in throttling to limit bandwidth usage to 65% of link speed during business hours.
