Neutron provides multiple ways to specify the maximum transmission unit (MTU) for networks.
neutron.conffile using the
global_physnet_mtuvalue. This value applies to all networks. For example:
/etc/neutron/neutron.conf [DEFAULT] global_physnet_mtu = <mtu_value>
--mtuoption. This value takes higher precedence and overrides the global value. For example:
openstack network create –-mtu <mtu-value> GREEN_NETWORK
The MTU value for each network is captured by Extreme plug-ins and passed to EFA. EFA then
enforces the value on the endpoint group as part of its
ip-mtu options. This value is per Ctag and is enforced on the VE interface
corresponding to the Ctag. EFA configures the
ip-mtu values on the specific VE interface on the device.
The value is applied to the SLX device when the router-interface is associated with the network in Neutron, either when the router is added to a subnet that is associated with the network or when a port on the network is added to a router.

NoteSLX supports IP MTU values in the range from 1280 through 9194 bytes. Creation of the router-interface fails if you try to configure an MTU value outside of this range.
