However, jumbo frames aren't free. You have to set the same MTU on ALL of the hardware in a given broadcast domain (LAN). Because of that, you'll typically only see that when interrupt processing has been demonstrated as a cost that needs to be reduced. In this case, CIFS is performing reasonably well without jumbo frames, so jumbo frames probably won't solve the problem.
