The last transfer I was able to do was 16.77GB according to rsync's output and it worked fine.
16.77G 100% 10.66MB/s 0:25:00 (xfer#17484, to-check=234753/256249)
But on a file over 17GB (gigs) it stalls. Trust me, it really is stalled, it's been about 8 hours with no progression from that point for some reason.
17.24G 54% 10.65MB/s 0:22:07
I've read about some people trying to change the timeout value on rsync but I don't see how that's the issue or how it might help.
I should also mention these are VMWare .vmdk virtual disk files that are stalling if it makes any difference As far as I can tell, whatever the case is, is that the problem is due to the size of the file and not anything to do with VMWare.
