TitleHow do I configure the MTU value for a VPLS instance
Question
How do I configure the MTU value for a VPLS instance?
Environment
  • CER
  • NetIron
  • VPLS
Answer
To configure a new MTU value for a VPLS instance, use the vpls-mtu command as shown in the following example.
device(config-mpls)# vpls myvpls 40000
device(config-mpls-vpls-myvpls)# vpls-mtu 1000

 
Additional notes
  • When a global default MTU has been configured, then the MTU for this VPLS instance becomes that global maximum frame size minus 26.
  • When no global default exists, the MTU is 1500.
For example, when the user removes the MTU value for the VPLS named myvpls, and the global default maximum frame size is 5000, then the MTU for VPLS myvpls becomes 4974 (5000 - 26 =4974).
