In this lab, we will investigate the benefits of enhanced networking and the effects of different MTU settings. Please note, that the current iteration of the lab does not show the same speeds as indicated by the video due to a change in AWS. The MTU section of the scenario is still accurate.
We will look at transfer speed between enhanced and non-enhanced instances. Then we will adjust MTU settings to see the effect.
The company's video processing systems in the cloud need to be able to transfer files back and forth at the best speeds possible. In preparation for this, you have been asked to make some observations and check some potential changes for their overall impact.
You will be provided credentials to the company's AWS console. Once logged in, locate and note the transfer speed between the enhanced and non-enhanced instances. Determine what impact, if any, changes to the MTU settings have on those speeds.
