If you use jumbo frame you have a significant impact in your round trip, and
make sure we are working to save microseconds/nanoseconds and a simple
overhead in round trip message impact us so much.

Again the MTU question is to do some calc to refine our network
configurations, not a simple configuration in Ethernet interface, a network
admin use this calc to project your network to a specific requirement, and
when you are talking in microseconds/nanoseconds this configuration made a
big difference. For example we are getting bad performance in one of our
nodes, and we discovered that router was configured for 576 MTU the result
is an overhead of 0.500 us each message with one specific throughput.

So the question is not about a MTU problem, but the use of it for a
