How Big is that Bag?

Standard ethernet packets usually 1,500 bytes long, on a typical home network this might vary because of ATM based internet connections, for high bandwidth environments this might increase with jumbo frames to 9,000 bytes and beyond with IPv6 jumbograms. So how does the size of a packet affect container performance in the transmit window?

The graph says it all, the different is minor.
