Guidelines for Jumbo Frames

You need jumbo frames when running the Extreme Networks VMAN implementation. If you are working on a BlackDiamond X8 series switch, BlackDiamond 8800 series switch, SummitStack, or a Summit family switch, you can enable and disable jumbo frames on individual ports before configuring VMANs. For more information on configuring VMANs, refer to VLANs.

Jumbo frame support is available on Summit family switches that are operating in a SummitStack. Refer to Displaying Port Information for information on displaying jumbo frame status.
