Subject:

Use Jumbo Frames to improve performance by sending fewer frames across the network, saving CPU time and consuming less bandwidth.

Contents:

The stipulation to using Jumbo Frames is that your network hardware, which includes Ethernet cards, switches, and routers, all need to support Jumbo Frames. Check the specs on your Ethernet card to make sure Jumbo Frames are supported. Then you need to check the manuals on your switches and routers to make sure they also support Jumbo Frames. Once your hardware has been verified, then it’s just a matter of setting Jumbo Frames in your Open-E server.

How to configure Jumbo Frames:

  1. Jovian DSS

[ JovianDSS CLI Console > CTRL+ALT+W > Select Tuning Options > Select Jumbo Frames Config ]

Select the interface you want to set and set the number to 9000.

  1. DSS V7

[ DSS V7 CLI Console > CTRL+ALT+W > Select Tuning Options > Select Jumbo Frames Config ]

Select the interface you want to set and set the number to 9000.
