      I have 2 linux machines on a Gig network. What would be the reason for
getting a timeout error.  We have --timeout=600 in the command.  The version
rsync is 2.6.2. There are no evident network problems otherwise.

The command used is

rsync -a --delete  --timeout=600 --stats --rsh="ssh -p 22" /localdata/
io timeout after 600 seconds - exiting
rsync error: timeout in data send/receive (code 30) at io.c(143)

Other rsyncs between the same 2 machines work when less data is transferred.

Please advise as to what I can tune to get past this.
