Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] Jumbo Frame in pktgen & dpdk-pktgen

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

Using *testpmd* [*--mbuf-size=2048 --max-pkt-len=9600*], I can send/receive
Jumbo pkt over vmxnet3 without any change in the dpdk source code.
Ref: https://doc.dpdk.org/dts/test_plans/jumboframes_test_plan.html

Can you please tell me why I will not be able to send jumbo packet from
pktgen without doing any change in dpdk/EAL ?

Regards,
N. Sarkar
