Description

In this course, you will be introduced to Jumbo Frames. We provide a detailed overview of Ethernet frames and how and what effect Jumbo Frames have when configured. Jumbo frames allow more than 1500 bytes of data by increasing the payload size per packet. We will review use cases and scenarios where Jumbo Frames are useful.

In this course, we provide a complete working demonstration - configuring a Jumbo Frame enabled network between 2 VPCs. We will deploy an EC2 instance within each VPC, each instance will be configured with a pair of ENIs. We will establish policy based routing such that we end up with 2 network paths between the instances - the 1st network path will have a 1500 MTU - utilizing Ethernet standard frames, and the second network path will have a 9000 MTU - utilizing Ethernet jumbo frames.
