Every time I'm trying to upload a file using
scp on my slow upload connection (~100kb/s), it shows something like :
test 27% 2208KB 2.2MB/s 00:02 ETA
On the first second I started it.
Obviously, it hasn't transferred 2208KB, and it's definitely not transferring at 2.2MB/s. After few seconds, it goes down to a correct speed, but does not go back on its previous lie: instead, when the transfer finishes, it hangs for seconds (or minutes) until the transfer is really finished.
I've seen that with every scp, on every linux, everytime my transfer speed is lower than 1MB/s.
What is going on with SCP ?
