Hi All,

I have RHOSP10 deployed with undercloud, overcloud in HA fashion using 3 controllers, 3 compute nodes, 3 Ceph Storage nodes. Everything just works fine. I have an use case to change the MTU value at the neutron level - for the OVS bridges so as to reflect the new MTU value for any new VM created). How to achieve this ? What will be the consequence which needs to be taken care ? Please suggest

Any sort of help is appreciated.

to Update the MTU size you also need to reconfigure the switches for the larger MTU size that could be 9000.

Hi All, Let me put here a workaround what i worked in my case. On all 3 overcloud-controller nodes, i changed the parameter


value in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf. Later i restarted neutron server as below:

systemctl restart neutron-server.service

With this, the all exisiting neutron networks got the new MTU also the newly created networks were with new MTU.

At the switch end , the network admin has enabled jumbo frames already.
