jumbo frame
Last modified: Friday, April 07, 2006 

Jumbo frames are large IP frames used in high-performance networks to increase performance over long distances. Jumbo frames is the term used most often to mean 9000 bytes for Gigabit Ethernet but can refer to anything over the IP MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) which is 1500 bytes on an Ethernet.

Gigabit Ethernet Jumbo Frames, And why you should care
Jumbo frames extends ethernet to 9000 bytes. Why 9000? First because Ethernet uses a 32 bit CRC that loses its effectiveness above about 12000 bytes. And secondly, 9000 was large enough to carry an 8 KB application datagram (e.g. NFS) plus packet header overhead. Is 9000 bytes enough? It's a lot better than 1500, but for pure performance reasons there is little reason to stop there.
