I would like to enable jumbo frames on my network due to the file sizes that we are constantly moving around (large images and video files). I am not quite sure though what to set my devices mtu size to. I have the following devices and their allowable mtu:
Mac computers max mtu: 9000
Netgear GSM7324 max mtu: 9216
Intel NIC on Windows server max mtu: 4088, 9014, 16128
No VLANs involved anywhere.
I want the most efficient transfer between the Mac computers. This is where most of the heavy lifting is done. Any large transfers between the Macs and the Windows server are almost always from a Mac to the Windows server.
So my question I guess is what should I configure as the mtu for each device? I can manually enter a number on the Macs and switch, but the Intel NIC only has those presets I can choose from.
