In TaskForce, Jumbo frames are activated by default to ensure maximum data transfer rates when imaging to a file on your server.

However, if Jumbo frames have been disabled, it is easy to enable them again and experience substantial boost to the speed of imaging!

First, create a file on the server, to which you will be imaging.

When you start to image to your server with Jumbo frame disabled, the data transfer speed will not exceed 500 MB/s. The actual speed will also depend on the configuration and current traffic in the network.

To boost the speed:

1. Pause the imaging session

2. Click the Service menu in the right corner of the top bar.

3. Click Settings

4. Enable Jumbo frames of the Ethernet port you are using and set MTU to 9000.

NB For fast imaging of files to your server via 10 Gigabit network, you need to activate Jumbo framework in the settings of the server’s network adapter as well as in the settings of the network switch, should it be necessary (10Gb switches normally have Jumbo framework activated by default).

Then you can return to your imaging session by clicking Image button and selecting the source and clicking Resume button. This time, the speed will be way higher!
