I have two Cisco 2800 routers that are connected via a MPLS cloud.  I want to give priority to the Citrix ICA clients over the print traffic and other less critical traffic.  I have been reading Cisco documentation on Policy, Traffic Shaping, Quality of Service and Cost of Service.  I have not been able to really determine if CoS or QoS is what I should be using to accomplish this.  Can somebody help clarify this?

If you have any links to good documentation for its introdution and setup,  I would appreciate them as well.

Thank you!

From what i hear one of the best study materials for QoS is the CCVP QoS study guide.

http://www.ciscopress.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=1587201240

there is also the cisco press QoS book

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
Quality of Service (QoS) options are nearly endless when it comes to networks today. This article is merely one example of how it can be handled in a hub-n-spoke design using a 3-tier configuration.
