    What is the ideal MTU Size for NFS Storage in VMware?

    jatinjsk Enthusiast



      We have performance issues on Storage where NFS Volumes GAVG/cmd goes upto 200 and keep fluctuating betwwen 150 to 200. This happens whenever we clone a VM or migrate a VM.


      Upon checking multiple things it was noticed that MTU at storage side is set to 1500 and at vSwitch side it is set to 9000.


      1. What should be MTU Size for NFS Storage at both end?

      2. is there any way we can determine ideal MTU for a specific network?
