There is no way around this. What Leo wrote is in no way wrong.



Maybe we need to define what the expression "huge difference" means in this context. Previously
it has been defined as 1.4% difference which in my opinion qualifies as understatement of the day.

If we would be talking about 20% or more difference here, the pain from larger MTU might be tolerable.

ACL checks I can agree on, but if you are optimizing the system, what
do you need ACL?s for anyway because you can make the applications
secure in the first place?

You're trolling, right?
