Is jumbo frames working ?

Question :

“Assuming that I enable jumbo frames, is there a way on in the VM to determine is jumbo frames are truly supported end-to-end?”


“In your VM, ping your destination with a large message and specify don’t fragment.”

  • Linux VMs: ping –M do –s 8000 target
  • Windows VMs: ping –f –l 8000 target
  • ESX(i): vmkping –d –s 8000 target
