Re: [Xen-devel] Re: [Xen-users] Release 0.9.10 of GPL PV Drivers for Windows / jumbo frames and xen netback changes

We (VirtualIron) do support jumbo frames - but currently only for iSCSI traffic to dom0 - not for inter-domain communications... ie - not over the bridge/vif. So - I'm not sure that this is what you're talking about here...

Have you thought about adding jumbo frame support (mtu 9000) ?

There was some discussion about this earlier, but I guess there was no
conclusion.. obviously this feature needs configuration on dom0 too

Yes I've thought about it, but I don't think it's supported by netback 
so there's not a lot I can do. I think some changes need to be made so 
that netback and netfront/gplpv can tell each other the MTU in use.


Hmm.. OK. 

Somehow I thought some Xen implementation (Citrix XenServer or VirtualIron)
supported jumbos.. but I'm not sure about that. I'd have to check again.

Does someone else have more information about this?
