I have a netgear GS110TP smart POE switch which is connected to a dual port INTEL PRO/1000PT with static link aggregation configured on the switch and PC side.
The network card and switch recognize each other and the devices can connect to each other. But the cameras perform better when jumbo frames are enabled and all the configurations for the network interfaces on both the computer and network switch read 9216 byte MTUs and on a single link this works normally. However with LAG and Jumbo Frames the cameras packets are dropped at the switch and it appears that even though configured the switch is dropping packets larger than 512 bytes.
This setup is involving high bandwidth industrial cameras connected over gig-e connections to a high performance workstation for video analysis over a Ethernet network. All devices are Jumbo frame capable and the camera network is on its own VLAN segment dedicated to the video data.
I am currently thinking that the issue is with the switch but I have not been able to figure out why it drops packets when configured for the correct MTU.
Also noted strange behavior in that even when there is just a single link with Jumbo frame support if the Do not fragment flag is set the switch drops large packets which doesnt make sense to me as the switch is set to allow for Jumbo Packets.
For now I worked around this issue by making separate VLANs for each interface but it would be more desirable to aggregate the links. And if the DNF flag is not allowed then I doubt jumbo frames is working properly.
