Configuring cut-through Layer 2 forwarding

About cut-through Layer 2 forwarding

A cut-through forwarding-enabled device forwards a frame after it receives the first 64 bytes of the frame. This feature reduces the transmission time of a frame and enhances forwarding performance.

Restrictions and guidelines for cut-through Layer 2 forwarding configuration

With cut-through forwarding, the device forwards CRC-error frames because it starts forwarding frames before their CRC field is received.
