What happens to runt frames received by a Cisco Ethernet switch?
- The frame is dropped.
- The frame is returned to the originating network device.
- The frame is broadcast to all other devices on the same network.
- The frame is sent to the default gateway.
In an attempt to conserve bandwidth and not forward useless frames, Ethernet devices drop frames that are considered to be runt (less than 64 bytes) or jumbo (greater than 1500 bytes) frames.
