You might want to consider what the Internet/2 folks are doing because they
have a few years of experience with Jumbo frames. This page <
http://noc.net.internet2.edu/i2network/jumbo-frames.html> gives an overview
and links to several presentations worth reading.

And this link <http://dc-2.grnoc.iu.edu/vn/analysis/connector-tech.html>
shows you the actual MTUs in use on Internet/2 devices.

They are particularly useful for customers who want to send data between
data centres because they usually have the ability to set a large MTU on all
interfaces on their side.
