    Baby Giant Frames

    Mike.B

      Hi Guys,

       

      What exactly is happening with respect to MTU size on devices that support baby giant frames?  If an end-point device sends a frame that is 1500 bytes to begin with, does that mean that the size of the frame as it traverses the trunk line is actually 1504 bytes? Or is the size being dynamically reduced to 1496 to accomodate the additional tag info?

       

      Thanks!
