Since these switches don't really have a large buffer size and they do have issues with jumbo frames. Can any one share their experience with these switches? We are looking to go with top of the rack model in the data center and even though we do not have jumbo frames enabled within our network for now I'm just concerned with the buffer size limits on these switches. Any feed back, notions will be greatly appreciated.
We do have some 4948's that we are thinking we can use in the racks where we have to enable/utilize jumbo frames. Only thing with 4948's other than the cost is the switching fabric is 96Gbps vs 160Gbps and 4948 if you use the uplink ports you lose the last 4 ports.
So if the jumbo frames is not enabled what would be a solid reason not to use them as top of the rack solution in the DC?
Thank you all for the replies. Just one correction 3560X supports dual power supplies however it does not support stacking, 3750X supports stacking that is the only difference between 3560X and 3750X.
Any ways 4948 I just don't like the fact that out of 52, only 48 ports can be active at any given time. 3560X and 3750X their buffer sizes are 768 ingress for 12 ports shared and 2MB egress 24 ports shared. That is pretty low. Any ways after some further research I'm more leaning towards 4948E/E-F. They seem to be a much better fit and with 48 ports instead of going 2 per rack we can probably do 2 per two racks because with 3560X's we were going to use the 24 port models.
4948E/E-F's have nice switching fabric and if I am not mistaken forwarding rate is 131mpps.
