Can qos cause issues on a LAN

Hi all

On a switch which has 1 gig uplinks to my core, and then 100 meg wan layer 2 links to another site, if I enable qos and then just trust the packets coming in, can this cause any issues. ? I haven't enabled and priority queue on the ports just mls qos trust dscp .

We have a server that's been having issues transferring files across the 100 meg wan links even though they are only 10% utilised, can the qos config above cause any issues?

And also to my core do I need to enable priority queue or just mls qos trust dscp ?

Cheers

What devices?

2960/3560/3750 all decrease their buffer resources (because of allocations per egress queues) when you enable QoS.

Does the problem exist with QoS disabled?

Can qos cause issues on a LAN

They are 3750s

I only enabled the trust qos command but with no priority queue. I haven't tested yet with qos disabled.

What are your thoughts?

Would you expect this behaviour?

Please can you elaborate?

Are any of your interfaces showing drops?

Not as far as I have seen!

With qos, will it only kick in when the interface is congested?
