Good day Alsayed,

The answer to your question is dependent upon what kind of hardware you are changing the MTU on.  Some switches allow interface level modification, while others require a system wide change, which often requires a reboot to take effect.  The link below has information about jumbo and giant frame support on different switching hardware.  I hope that helps.
