Today I've removed the -vv switch and the traffic is now: IN 7.77M, OUT 
423.64 KB. I have three clients running rsync to the server, 1 on OpenBSD, 
2 on Windows (cywgin). The windows servers have no trouble with -vv and 
large traffic, Only the OpenBSD machine. Is this related to the amount of 
data or files the clients have?

Is there another way to do some detailed logging. (files changed, files 
copied, filesize etc)?
Now I do this... rsync -vv parameters > /var/log/20030731.log
