When exchanging any information on a network, data transfer is carried out not in a continuous stream, but in small blocks, which largely determines the efficiency of network throughput. Such blocks have a fixed size, determined by the value of the Maximum Transmission Unit parameter , or MTU for short . This parameter determines the maximum data block size of a single packet, excluding headers, and is typically 1500 bytes . Continue reading “What is MTU and how to change its value”
