I currently have a network with (8) 2960 Cisco Switches.  (6) of the 2960 switches are etherchanneled back to (2) 2960 switches in the computer room.  I would like to setup QOS on the (8) switches, however the traffic is very differnt on each of the switches.  I have video, ip phone, server, printer, PC traffic.  I am not sure what the best method of separating this traffic into differnt QOS queues.

Does anybody have any suggestions or configuration examples?

There are only 2 software input queues and 4 output queues on each interface, so you have to group some traffic may be like

voice in priority queue--queue1

video in queue 2

server traffic in queue 3

rest of the traffic in queue 4

Thank you for the reply,

Can you tell me what the configuration would look like on the switch for this queuing?

Thank you again

I am not sure whether 2960s support AutoQoS or not, if they do Configuring AutoQoS is the better way to go if they don't please check the following links for manual QoS config on LAN switches
