comment VMXNET3 performance on Linux on ESX 5.0
@ewwhite There are some more knowledge base articles related to Ethernet TCP offload settings. Some even have ESXi 5.0/5.1/5.5 in the product list, so I'm quite confident that it makes sense to test different offload settings (on both the guest and host, if that's possible).

Agree, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try testing with offload settings disabled.
