I need to prioritize Citrix traffic, we have 20+ users and all use Citrix for our applications. There are a few fat apps at this site, but if they slow down from prioritizing citrix, it's not big deal. This is a cisco 1760, and a Point to Point T1 to our data center.
Ok here goes, been reading a little about this... Citrix is BURSTY! I downloaded and installed DU meter and it shows how Bursty and thirsty Citrix actually is... i recommend DU meter for everyone who thinks citrix is just a 20Kb/sec thin client connection.... it averages out that way, but the virtual channels definitely need to be capped on a WAN.
Below is the running config on my router, and the sho int.... the QOS policy doesn't seem to work, i can start a download on Dell's website and slow everyone down. I"m going to upgrade the IOS to 12.4(4) tomorrow and see if it helps, mainly because the citrix PDLM is version 9 in that IOS and will allow me to prioritize ICA virtual channel traffic... I hvae to get this working first.
background, router config is very simple, we basically direct all traffic to the data center....where we have a 2mb/sec internet connection and our servers.
Can anyone give me some pointers on the QOS policy and why it's not working? I'll clear counters and post again soon on the serial interface..
next post willhave sho run and sho int
