If using a Mellanox ConnectX-3, 4, or 5 as a dataplane NIC in BIG-IP VE with the DPDK driver, the tmm does not support a value greater than 1500 for the MTU on these cards. Attempts to use jumbo frames will result in dropped packets.
Packets greater than 1500 bytes in size will be dropped by the device.
BIG-IP VE with an SR-IOV virtual function from a Mellanox ConnectX-3, 4, or 5 NIC driven by the tmm's DPDK support, and a VLAN MTU greater than 1500 bytes.
Do not configure a VLAN MTU greater than 1500 bytes if it contains one of these interfaces.
