I've a litle question regarding catalyst 6500 jubbo frame.

I've installed a WS-X6724-sfp module and I've put on a interface lhe mtu 9216 command. in the show interface gx/x command i see the receive giant couter icreasing.

The question is: is normal that the counter increase? or is an error on interface and the giant frame are discarded?

If you are sending packets larger than the default MTU 1500, the giant counter will increase. Nothing to worry about.
