Regarding how to use ethtool and it's difficulties

Hello everyone

I have small doubt as seen in the screenshot I have used command :sudo ethtool -K enp0s5 rx off tx off tso off ufo off gso off gro off lro off to switch off offloading functions but rx chesksum is not turning off can u help me out if u have any idea regarding this sir.
NOTE:Iam running this on kvm virtualized virtual machine .

Why are you using ethtool anyway?

sudo ip link set down dev ens3
sudo ip link set up dev ens3

ip is a default command in all modern linux distros.

Now, the question is, what are you trying to achieve? I see you wanted to add elasticsearch to your machine. ethtool is useful if you want to get some details about your ethernet port, like the driver in use, but ip does most of the things today (even network bridging).
