Speed of link between devices on 3750 switch

Unanswered Question
Sep 10th, 2010

I just acquired the administration of a small network with some Cisco 3750 switches which are in a stack configuration. We have IP phones and workstations/servers on these switches which were configured prior to my arrival. With new servers and workstations on these switches we are experiencing extremely slow data transfer from workstation to server or server to server. I checked duplex and speed settings for the affected ports and that looks fine. I also checked for errors on the ports and there are none. Below is the interface configuration, sh int and sh mls qos int output. The config and output is the same for all 5 interfaces which we are having a problem. I’m not up to speed with QoS and CoS and was wondering if that’s possibly the issue and would greatly appreciate any help and guidance.
Thank you,

Can you remove all QoS settings from the server ports? Since server traffic

will be regular traffic on the switch, you do not need to regulate it using

QoS settings.

Thank you for the response. Do you suspect the QoS configuration to be suspect with our issue? If so, I would appreciate some technical info as to help me understand the QoS setup on this switch.

Thanks again,
