I'm looking for a switch that will be used for NFS traffic on a cluster
of about 40 nodes. The nodes will have Broadcom 5704 ethernet. From
what I've read, jumbo frames is important for getting the best NFS
performance over gigabit ethernet.
D-link and Netgear have newer 48 port switches priced below managed
switches. The D-link is model DGS-1248T
http://dlink.com/products/?sec=2&pid=367 and the Netgear is model GS748T
http://netgear.com/products/details/GS748T.php. Each are about $1200 or
so. I'm unable to find info on their websites specifying whether these
switches support jumbo frames. Anyone know?
