Subject: How To Enable Jumbo Frames In Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Are file transfers slow on your network? Are you constantly passing data between your computers? Well, maybe jumbo frames are for you. Jumbo frames are larger than standard network packet payloads.

Jumbo frames decrease the overhead associated with transferring files by limiting the number of packets that your networking equipment needs to process.
