I am trying to use jumbo frames on my network to improve performance.
When I turn on jumbo frames I have problems with copying files from the
pc to the server. I have spent a lot of time trying to stop the problem. The
performance of copying files from the server to the pc increases. I finally
did notice that under the nic in monitor I see that the counters for
"Receive discarded ,no available buffers" starts rising very fast as soon
the card is loaded and bound if jumbo is on. The thing is I check the ecbs
and they are not rising or having any issues. Anyone have any other ideas?
Also the card will just stop communicating. I unload the nic and reload and
it works till I try copying again.
