Hi,

My knowledge of switch architecture is pretty limited.  I have a Cisco SG300 switch that I would like to give priority for a specific port's traffic if there is any hint of congestion.  Anything going to or from this port would go first.  Is that possible?

Thanks!

Not as easily as you are probably hoping for. That switch can do QoS classification and rate limiting, so you should be able to develop the classification and policing policies to achieve the goal you are after. It's not an easy task, so you might consider hiring a consultant for a limited term gig to get it setup and tested.
