I'm debating whether disable or not to disable Q0s packet scheduler on the Windows XP Machines in a small business network (windows 2003 sbs as DC). From what I read the only time Qos comes into play is when dealing with applications that are specifically Qos aware. We are running a pretty standard set of programs on each workstation and I'm wondering whether any of them could in fact utilize Qos feature.
This is what a typical setup looks like
MS Office 2007
Mozilla Firefox 3.6
Adobe Acrobat Standard (6.0 and 8.0 flavors throughout the network)
Symantec Endpoint Protection
We also have 3 servers in the netowkr (2 2003 standard boxes and 1 2003 sbs dc)
Wold I benefit from disabling Qos packedt scheduler on those? Or is this a no no?
