I setup a erspan session with mtu 256 (truncates packets).

Am i correct that wireshark will report the actual received data when giving throughput and packet size statistics ? (As opposed to look at info in ip/tcp header.(

Does this mean i have to enable jumbo frames, and tunnel full packets using erspan to get a accurate picture ?
