Verify and Validate Jumbo Frames Configuration

For jumbo frames to properly and pass from device to device, both devices plus all network devices in between must be configured. Miss configuration on a single port or device and all of your hard work is for nothing, you will have fragmented packets and may even see a loss in performance.

The easiest way to do this is to run a ping but you can’t just run a normal ping. You must force the buffer size and set it not to fragment. This can be done using the following command below (where is your destination ip):

ping -l 8972 -f
