Can anyone provide me a Brocade documentation on why one cannot test MTU 9000 with PING on some Brocade platforms. The max allowed seems to be 8972.
Couldn't find any document why this is. I however know this isn't universal becasue it works on some brocade platforms have worked with.

Brocade requires that the ICMP byte is specified while testing PING/ICMP packets between hosts.
IP:20 bytes + ICMP: 8 bytes.
On Brocade – To test 9000 bytes (IP+ICMP headers are not included in the MTU value by default unlike other known vendors).
ping 10.1.1.1 size 8972 no-frag
