scp slow for tar files?


I have a strange issue that I am experiencing. I am trying to send a tar file from one server to another that are literally sitting side by side in the datacenter. However for some reason this tar file sends SOOO slow, like 35kb/s. If I send any other type of file I get very good speeds, but for some reason this one tar file just doesn't want to send... Anyone know why?

What kind of connection is this, are you trying
compression with the ssh daemon? It may be
working (speeding things up) for plain ASCII
but actually break-in on trying to compress
a compressed file.


Cheers,

Well I am just using a simple scp command without the -C flag. Is there a way to force it not to compress?

You'd have to either check
sshd_config on the receiving end
or
or ssh_config on the sending end.

You didn't mention what type of network
you're using or what transfer rates you're
getting on which other file-type.


Cheers,
Tink

Alright will look into those files... The servers are both on 100 mbps network and I get around 1.2 mb/s when sending other files as compared with 35 kb/s when sending tar files.
