I‘m transferring 1.1 Mb files over very poor GSM EDGE connection. My rsync command is:
rsync --partial --remove-source-files --timeout=120 --append --progress --rsh=ssh -z LOCAL_FILE root@SERVER:REMOTE_PATH
File on remote server “grows” in size in steps of 262144 bytes. That is a lot, because system needs to transfer at least 262144 (before compression) every time connection is established. When I use
scp –C chunk size is about 32Kb. Is there a way to change chunk size for rsync?
--block-size but no visible difference.
