As for jumbo frames, will someone remind me what the benefit 
of using a
larger MTU on the edges than you have in the core is?  Is the 
edge device
going to aggregate 6 1500-byte packets into a single 
9000-byte jumbo frame
for me?

It's an internal LAN system issue on the edge. In a distributed system
environment, having app servers talk to data servers, using jumbo
packets, makes for higher system throughput. The Jumbo packets should
never be seen at the border, however. In fact, the data servers
themselves should never be seen fromn the border <g>.
