Impact of Jumbo frames or 1500 through 1900 frame sizes on the Network

Dear all;

The Jumbo frames(from 1900 through 9000 Bytes) or frame sizes from 1500 through 1900 Bytes are recommended for many reasons (Reducing the servers CPU cycles, enhancing throughputs,...). Does anyone tested the frame sizes changes before? and what should be the critical zones to check before making this enhancement, regardless to the servers and the swiches?

Cheers

Hi there.

I think you will find the following link helpful in understanding what the critical limits for your system are.

This was posted on the forums just a few days back.

Jumbo Frames do make a difference in throughput especially while relating to backups and large file transfers

HTH! :)
