You can use the ping feature to determine the maximum MTU size
Because firmware releases 3.2.0 and later force the do not fragment flag in the ping command, you can ping a host to determine the maximum MTU size.
The following parameters display on the OSD Ping page:
|Destination||IP address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) to ping.|
|Interval||Interval between ping packets.|
|Packet Size||Size of the ping packet.|
|Packets Sent||Number of ping packets transmitted.|
|Packets Received||Number of ping packets received.|
|Start/Stop||Press Start or Stop to start or stop the ping.|
To ping a host:
- From the OSD, select Options > Diagnostics > Ping.
- Click Start to start the ping. To stop the ping, click Stop.
- Click Close.
