    Do SnapServers support jumbo frames?

    This information applies to the following Operating System(s):

    - This information is not Operating System specific




    ---Solution---

    SnapOS base servers do not have the option to enable jumbo frames.

    GuardianOS base servers do not officially support jumbo frames (since it is not an available option the UI and it is not thoroughly tested). If one insists on enabling jumbo frames, the set_jumbo_frame command can be issued to enable jumbo frames.

    For example:
    set_jumbo_frame eth0 on

    Reboot the SnapServer. After reboot, run ifconfig and check MTU for the interface. Default size is 1500 and jumbo frame size is 9000.


    Remember to give the disclaimer that one enables jumbo frames at one's own risk. Risks include but are not limited to incompatibility and performance degradation.
