Enable TSO support on the network adapter of a Linux virtual machine so that the guest operating system redirects TCP packets that need segmentation to the VMkernel.
Verify that ESXi supports the Linux guest operating system.
See the VMware Compatibility Guide documentation.
Verify that the network adapter on the Linux virtual machine is VMXNET2 or VMXNET3.
To enable TSO, run the following command:
ethtool -K ethY tso on
To disable TSO, run the following command:
ethtool -K ethY tso off
where Y in ethY is the sequence number of the NIC in the virtual machine.
