We have a site with a 25/25 fiber connection that experiences periods of high saturation. The site is also leveraging a hosted phone system.
I'm curious what this community would advise in terms of traffic shaping. Here are the facts:
We have the default rules enabled
We do have the phones in their own VLAN.
the hosted system is using the standard SIP protocol, so nothing funky there.
Uplink stats show packet loss during high utilization (as is expected)
During high utilization the site has voice problems.
What can/should I do to fix this?
I've thought about artificially limiting the "non-phone" network to 20x20 this way the phones would always have 5mbps. However, last time I tested, there wasn't a way to limit the aggregate throughput on a network - only on a "per client" level.
