Jumbo Frames and Multi-NIC vMotion Performance over 10Gbe – Part 2

A week ago I wrote a post as sort of a follow-on to Chris Wahl’s post on performance gains (or lack thereof) using jumbo frames for multi-NIC vMotion. A fellow blogger, Josh Odgers (blog / twitter), posted a comment stating more testing with the same workloads across tests would be interesting to see. In my previous testing I performed 3 …

Jumbo Frames and Multi-NIC vMotion Performance over 10Gbe

Chris was doing these tests using a 1Gbe network and the results indicated that you get slightly better performance by NOT using jumbo frames. There were a few comments and questions regarding what this would look like if you had a 10Gbe infrastructure. I also had …
