Check jumbo frame is working

Jumbo frame needs to configured end to end. To check this, ping the target server with an MTU size close to 9000. 9000 will not work as some space is used for headers and you cannot send an actual payload of 9000 bytes.

Linux
ping -M do -s 8800 $IP [-I eth$]

Windows
ping -f -l 8800 $IP

VMware ESXi
ping -d -s 8800 $IP [-I vmk$]
vmkping -d -s 8800 $IP [-I vmk$]
