Right, the issue I am having is larger then 1500 packet being sent to the
The only way I can think of to control this per guest would be to
configure the tap device of the vNIC, however, all devices connected to a bridge have to
have the same mtu so changing one tap device would require changing them all which would
beat the purpose.
So I'm not sure what you're actually asking for here.
Today what I do is this. Fire up the VM, find out what host its on, figure
out the vnet interface and then ifconfig it with smaller MTU if it is say
vnet1 I would:
ifconfig vnet1 mtu 1500
This seams to be working, other hosts that have vnet interfaces at 9000
bytes still work and nothing larger then 1500 bytes is sent to the vnet I
lower to 1500. I now just need a way to keep from doing this every time
