Suggestions welcomed: Jumbo frames w/ 1gb connections
Posted on 2007-11-30
I'm aware that some here have already asked this question but I have a few more questions.
1. I have 100mb network backbone right now. I'd like to speed that up.
2. What kind of hardware would be needed? I was looking at an adapter that supports jumbos. Which cards are best for this?
3. What kind of adapter do I need on the server to promote these speeds. Some have said that pci slots are too slow. So what do I need, PCI-e ?
4. Also, there are devices on the network that not jumbo frame compatible. So, I'd like to get a managed switch with VLAN support. I could use this and separate jumbo and non jumbo devices.
Is this setup correct? And if so what vendor do you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
