Ubuntu scp stall resolved

Posted 09-24-2008 at 06:34 AM by Vermind

I had been troubled for long by my Ubuntu server not uploading files with scp or rsync properly. The transfers would hang at a little bit over 2MB, and never proceed from there. I asked on the Ubuntu forums about this, and yesterday received a fix suggestion that worked for me. The fix entails adding lines to /etc/sysctl.conf that change the default net and IPv4 behaviour, like so:

net.core.rmem_default = 524288
net.core.rmem_max = 524288
