Be careful with Jumbo frames. It only works if every device on the
network is set to support them. If not, everything slows to a snails

network was absolutely dedicated (including switches an hubs) to only
the few machines using Jumbo, it was useless. So we are back to
regular frames on the regular LAN, and only use Jumbo for a single
