User log in bogging down network - How to QOS / Bandwidth per computer

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am working with a slow network (100mbs), we are having an issue were one user has a large profile and when that user logs in onto a new computer it almost halts the network.

    The obvious solution it to install a 1GB switch, which I am going to do but...

    This company is rapidly growing and it wont be long before there are several users with large profiles logging in simultaneously. 

    I would like to implement some sort of QoS policy where each computers connection to the server is limited to a max of say 100mb.

    Can this be done with built in GPO's or Free Software.

    The site is running a single server 2012 domain controller. that is also the file server.

    Thanks in advanced for any help you can give.

    Cheers

    Before going further, we can use GPO to configure policy-based QoS to manage network traffic.

    Regarding this point, the following articles can be referred to as reference.

    Based on the description, I do agree that this should be the way to go.
