Does MAS support Jumbo frames ? and how do I configure it ?

Aruba Employee
MAS  supports Jumbo frames which can be enabled on per-interface basis under the interface. Frame sizes up to 7168 Bytes are supported on the system, default size is 1514 Bytes.

(ArubaS3500) (config) #interface gigabitethernet 0/0/6
(ArubaS3500) (gigabitethernet "0/0/6") #mtu 7168

MTU can be set  on interface between 64 and 9216

The supported jumbo frame can be verified by viewing the MTU size on the interface:

(ArubaS3500) #show interface gigabitethernet 0/0/6
