Just recently I came to know that the payload of Ethernet is max 1500 bytes (mtu).
The first thing that came to my mind was that we can ping with much more size than that. So I thought maybe the ping packet is being fragemented in someway. So I checked on wireshark and I saw that it's only one packet, even when I ping with size of 10,000 bytes.
What is the explanation behind this?
Even if Jumbo Ethernet frames are used, which supports till 9000 bytes, I can still ping with like 17,000 bytes which is still larger than 9000.
