I currently upgraded my nexus 5020's to the new version of NX-OS 4.2(1)N1.1. Everything upgraded pretty well as far as I can see.
Now i've been asked to set up Jumbo Frames on the two 5k's. Keep in mind the two 5020's are not running a VPC setup. There is no
connection directly from one 5020 to the other. They both head to dual 6509's running VSS. My question is, in order to set up Jumbo frames
switch wide...do i need to do this by entering the following?
switch(config)# policy-map type network-qos jumbo switch(config-pmap-nq)# class type network-qos class-default switch(config-pmap-c-nq)# mtu 9216 switch(config-pmap-c-nq)# exit switch(config-pmap-nq)# exit switch(config)# system qos switch(config-sys-qos)# service-policy type network-qos jumbo
Also, I would assume this would take care of setting all interfaces to allow Jumbo frames, but when I look at
MTU size when doing sho interfaces, it's still showing 1500. I was just curious, since this is policy based
will it show the new MTU size?
In addition, will I have to do anything in order to allow Jumbo frames on my nexus 2k top of rack switches?
Since these are controlled by the 5k's, will my above commands take care of that for the 2k's?
What if I want to enable jumbo frame per interface? On my Nexus 5020, I only want use 10 ports with jumbo frames and the rest with a regular 1500 MTU size. Will a global enable like this impact the 1500 MTU frames on the interfaces not using the larger 9216 MTU size?
