Do you have QOS on your network ? not sure what infrastructure you have currently, or the configuration of your network (LAN & WAN). Qos allows bandwith or performance gaurentees between devices on a LAN or over a WAN - if you dont have it already configured this is a pretty substantial job - it would help to have more info.

QOS isnt something thats configured on your windows network, its something that your network hardware needs to allow as its done at the lower levels of the network stack.

what network hardware do you have ?

QoS is where you can prioritize traffic for a particular service.  VoIP, database, etc.  as woolnoir said, you're network hardware must be able to support it.  i know the sonicwall, but i don't know your switches.  i pulled the manuals for you.  hope it helps!

QoS will be most helpful here if you have database access over a vpn or if you've opened your firewall for internet access to your database.  is this the case.

You cant input it if you don't have QOS setup on your LAN.

The database guy is wasting your time anyway with only 72 switch ports in the whole network.  If you are having latency issues with only 3 24port switches something else is wrong.

Sounds like the database guy is just trying to pass the blame for poor performance of the application.  I'm not saying that QoS wouldn't potentially help, but I would really question the logic behind it.  If you are trying to improve application performance for off-site users accessing over a WAN connection it would make a little more sense because of limited bandwidth but don't expect miracles.

And, by the way....if you are doing VOIP on your network and you did this, it would certainly kill your voice quality.
