All the member NICs, once in the The valid range is from 0 toand default is Depending on kernel and system architecture, the driver may require up to bytes per descriptor.

Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of jumbo traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. Note that the MTU size excludes the ethernet header size of 14 gugabit.
