Pix & jumbo frames

Hi all,

Does Pix 525 with code 7.2 support jumbo frames? Any one running Pix with mtu set to 9000?

Thanks

John

Re: Pix & jumbo frames

As stated earlier, wiseman GE cards (32bit, 33 MHz) does not support Jumbo packets. They can be set to 1500 max mtu.

Re: Pix & jumbo frames

Pix with livengood GE-cards (64bit, 66 MHz) do support the jumbo packets. They should run pix version 5.3.1 and above.

The Jumbo parket size can upto 16K. If you want to use the Jumbo packet you need to set the "mtu" of the GE nic to 16000. Its recommended not to exceed 16000.

Note: The wiseman GE cards (32bit, 33 MHz) does not support Jumbo packets.

Hope this helps.

Re: Pix & jumbo frames

If show interface is showing i82542, then these are 33MHz Wiseman cards.

66MHz Livengood version will show up as i82543.

Thus, as per the current output, it seems that you have 33MHz Wiseman cards.

Hope this helps.

Vibhor.
