IBM i doesn't assert or honor flow control frames for Ethernet, therefore we don't care. They can hold up the 'stop sign' all day and we'll blow right through it. :-)

I have a client where their network switches default a parm called

They have discovered with some of their non-iSeries HW that setting causes
a performance issue. I have been asked what is the preferred setting ( or
do we care? ) for use with iSeries GB NICs.

IBM Support's answer was since they don't have a parm to set in the iSeries
then they don't care.

Any body has a better answer?
