QoS ? Network saturation

Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have 7 servers connected to a gigabit switch.  These servers have agents installed that take snapshots every 15 minutes and send the data to another local server on the same network (business continuity device).  Occassionally, it seems that the agents saturate the network when pushing the snapshots to the BDR device... up to  400 Mbps or so that I've seen.

Is the best option to resolve this to configure QoS on the switch?  It's a managed Cisco SG 300-20...and I've never done that.  Thoughts?  I need the highest priority to be RDP-3389 - How do you config this on this switch through the web interface?
