What are Jumbo Frames and will they be on the SA-Pro exam? If so, could you add a section to cover them in this course? I don’t recall hearing about them in SA-Associate course, either.
I don’t know if the topic would be on the SA Pro Exam – it can come up on the Advanced Networking exam and so I suppose there’s a chance it would be on the SA Pro as well.
Using Jumbo Frames is a network mechanism that can allow for transmission of more data per packet, and by doing so can improve network performance. I think it primarily applies to AWS Direct Connect services. Here are a couple links where you can read more:
AWS Direct Connect now Supports Jumbo Frames for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud Traffic
Setting Network MTU for Private Virtual Interfaces or Transit Virtual Interfaces
I had a couple questions that involved jumbo frames on my latest exam experience, for what its worth.
