I'm rsyncing a large file to a remote server. It starts off fast, and then after about 5 seconds it drops to 500kB/s. I've tried with an without compression. Any ideas on how I can speed this up?


@joseph zterm? :) I am no expert on networking, but from what I understand packets transfer at a larger size until they fail validation/verification, then progressively smaller packets are sent until they fail and so the process repeats. This speaks to the quality of your network traffic/flow etc. This is no answer, but maybe it helps to understand what is going on. Much like understanding the inner workings of the internal combustion engine make you feel better about being stuck on the side of the road.
