Someone writing a feature request to add jumbo frame support to the 
TCP/IP stack for Mac OS X is looking around for real world 'before and 
after' performance data.

People seem happy doing jumbo frames in switch-to-switch configurations 
with homogenous network hardware but has anyone enabled this out to 
client hosts in one of their clusters? I've only done this as a way to 
get familiar with the management interfaces on various bits of hardware 
and have never left the settings enabled for any length of time or in a 
real production environment.

Any stories or data to share?
