We currently have all ports on our fibre switches set to AE for QOS but we have no zones defined. It looks to me like we would get better performance if we disabled QOS because from my understanding when you have AE ports and no zones defined all your traffic is given medium priority and is only able to use the medium assigned buffer credits. (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/sanblog/entry/san_myths_uncovered_quality_of_service_in_brocade_fabricos2?lang=en).
As our Brocade 300's are Dell badged I have had to go to Dell for support. They have said "you can try disabling QOS on the ports".
I am looking for something more definite than that. Can someone tell me if our current configuration be negatively impacting performance or if the AE port settings is something that can be ignored?

I wrote an entire article on that.
