MTU Recommendations

Are there any recommendations around MTU settings with VMWare on NFS.  I have hunted around the whitepapers on behalf of a Partner but haven't come across anything useful so far.

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Craig,

Nice to see you around

Have a look at this:

It's rather discussion than recommendation, but MTU=9000 seems to be the magic setting.

Regards,
Radek
