Which MTU size can cause a baby giant error?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D.
In networking, the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) is the maximum size of a packet or frame that can be transmitted over a particular network medium.
When a packet or frame is larger than the MTU size, it must be fragmented into smaller pieces to be transmitted over the network. However, if a network device receives a packet or frame that exceeds its maximum buffer size, it will drop the packet and send an error message called a "baby giant" error.
The answer to the question is option D - 1518.
The standard MTU size for Ethernet networks is 1500 bytes, which includes the Ethernet frame header and trailer. However, some network devices and technologies, such as jumbo frames, support larger MTU sizes.
An MTU size of 1518 is slightly larger than the standard Ethernet MTU size of 1500 bytes, but small enough that it is still supported by most network devices. If a packet or frame with an MTU size of 1518 is sent over a network that does not support this larger size, it can cause a baby giant error.
Option A (1500) is the standard MTU size for Ethernet networks and is not likely to cause baby giant errors. Option B (9216) is the maximum MTU size supported by some network devices for jumbo frames and is too large to cause baby giant errors. Option C (1600) is larger than the standard MTU size but still smaller than 1518 and is also not likely to cause baby giant errors.
