We are currently shooting in the dark...If possible update the Firmware of the 
NICs and FW of the switch .
Have you tried if other systems (on the same switch) have issues with the Jumbo 
Frames ?
Best Regards,Strahil Nikolov 
    Yes, i did test the ping with a jumbo frame mtu and it worked without 
problems. There is no firewall between the storage nodes and the 
hypervisors. They are using the same layer 2 subnet, so there is only 
the switch in between. On the switch jumbo frames for the specific wlan 
is enabled.

I also increased the tx and rx queue length, without succes in relation 
to the problem.
