Growing file

      What would be the expected behaviour of rsync, synchronizing a file
that is changing in size.
If I have a file ( say 100G ) that is being gzipped, and I start an rsync of
that file system to a remote
location, would rsync just send the data of that gzip file that exists on
disk at that point in time,
or would it keep looping seeing that the file is changing.
