I'm unable to find the option to set MaxFanInPorts on any AVB enabled switch I have and I didn't see the option in the manual either.

Per the AvNU documentation on MSRP: 
MSRP provides a parameter that may
alleviate this potential problem in some cases if it does occur. By setting
msrpMaxFanInPorts to a non-zero value less than the total number of ports,
latency could be reduced. The price for the reduced latency is the reduction in
the number of ports that can simultaneously have active listeners attached to

TGDAVIDF01.1 # sh msrp
MSRP Status                           : Enabled

Total MSRP streams                    : 0
Total MSRP reservations               : 0

Flags:  (*) Active,              (!) Administratively disabled,
        (a) SR Class A allowed,  (b) SR Class B allowed,
        (g) Load sharing port
I know how to set this in a Netgear AVB switch and even in the new Cisco AVB enabled models, how do I set this option in the Extreme switches?

I see that you have also opened a GTAC case for this.  I'm not sure if this is currently possible.  We are investigating.

Yeah, sorry for going through both channels, but this has become a hot issue internally.

Currently there is no  provision in EXOS to configure the MaxFanInPorts.

Thank you, I've been told via our ticket that there is an engineering request (case# 01221072) to add this ability.
