Support for 9K Jumbo Ethernet Frames

There has been a lot of discussion around suppor for 9K Jumbo Frames for HP BladeSystem interconnect modules.


Paul chimes in:



Do you mean that the max frame size supported by HP with the NC532i and NC532m is 4K?  IIRC there are other Flex-10 capable NICs with full 9000 byte Jumbo Frame support.  Also, IIRC the Flex-10 I/O module supports a full 9000 byte Jumbo Frame MTU.



Emanuel also replied:



The NC550m is Flex-10 capable today and supports 9K frame sizes.



What are you using? Do you need 9K Jumbo Frames?
