qos for solidworks


I want to apply qos for solidworks application since its taking too long to open any drawing from network folder and more employees are complaining about the speed of the network.I was wondering if there is any way that we can prioritize the traffic associated with solid works?

No, not unless you move the files to their own server. All file traffic to or from the server looks exactly the same from the network's perspective. If your network is 100 mbit you may want to look at gigabit Ethernet. It is also possible that your server is slow. The likely place for the server to be slow is in the disk subsystem. You may need more and or faster disks.
I would say your bottleneck is probably your disk i/o and you may want to look at SSD as a sub system for the Solidworks.

Probably one of the best bang for the buck solutions out there.

You could also set up a RAM disk or go with an SSD cache device of some sorts.


Starwind and Velobit.
