Any specific reasons for enabling this option ?

Any MTU more than 1500 bytes should be supported by your NIC.
What NIC model are you using ?

These frames are called Jumbo Frames (9000 Bytes MTU)

By the way how did you set the MTU to 9000 in vSwif ?

The excellent Scott Lowe has a good article about setting Jumbo Frames on ESX for IP Storage,  the commands will work the same for your service console I would imagine.

It should be noted however that Scott does mention that officiallyjumbo frames are only supported for virtual machines.  This post is from last year so it would be worth checking what the situation is with Support for the COS.
