The ability of various Cisco Catalyst switches to support different frame sizes depends on many factors, one of which is the hardware and software involved. Certain modules can support larger frame sizes than others, even within the same platform. Additionally, maximum frame size support can also change based on the software version used.
Jumbo frames are frames larger than the standard Ethernet frame size of 1518 bytes, which includes the Layer 2 header and Frame Check Sequence (FCS). In other words, jumbo frames refer to Ethernet packets of up to 9000 bytes in size. In Catalyst 4500 series switches, the Supervisor III and IV can handle packets up to a maximum size of 9198 bytes.
Jumbo frame support can be enabled on these types of interfaces:
Switched Virtual Interface (SVI)
Physical interface (Layer 2 (L2) / (L3))
When the jumbo frame feature is enabled on a port, the port can switch large or jumbo frames. This feature optimizes server-to-server performance. The default Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) frame size is 1548 bytes for all Ethernet ports. The MTU size is increased to 9216 bytes when the jumbo frame feature is enabled on a port.
On a Cisco Catalyst 3750 series switch, the jumbo frames are supported on the Gigabit Ethernet ports. The MTU cannot be changed on an individual interface. It must be set globally. The switch must be reset afterward in order for the MTU change to take effect.
Jumbo frame support is available in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)EW and later for the Supervisor III and IV. On the 4000/4500 platform, jumbo frames are supported only on non-blocking Gigabit Ethernet ports on certain blade models. These are the Gigabit modules and specific ports that support jumbo frames:
Both supervisor uplink ports on Supervisor III (WS-X4013) and Supervisor IV (WS-X4014)
WS-X4232-GB-RJ, ports 1-2 only
WS-X4418-GB, ports 1-2 only
WS-X4412-2GB-TX, ports 13-14 only
The configuration of this feature is performed on each port, as shown:
Hi, everyone When I run a simulation of uRPF loose mode on the GNS3, I found that the suppressed verification counter increased.And from the document,https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/sec_data_urpf/configuration/xe-3s/sec-data-urpf-xe...
Before the upgrade, I was able to SSH into a level 15 user and it would land me directly to # without using enable. After upgrading to from 16.3.8 to 16.9.4, my level 2 account can still SSH in but level 15 user account gets % login invalid. So I try...
What design is generally recommended for an office with approx 400 client devices. We have about 10 x access L2 switches (2960x) and are not sure whether to go with 1 x L3 stack (4 x 9300 switches) or maybe 2 x stacks (of 2 x 9300 switches). We are thinki...
After I create a VLAN i can no longer access the GUI.port 1 - trunk connected to routerport 2 - access, PCThe switch is connected to an Edgerouter.I'm sure it's something simple, but I'm new to VLANs and can't figure it out.
