writefd_unbuffered failed to write - Broken pipe

I am using Rsync 2.6.3 , and have tried rsync 2.6.2 also. I am attempting to
push about 990G from one machine to another. Whenever I do this, it
processes about 1/3 the way through and I receive the following error during
the transfer, and it stops.  Could this be a problem with it running as a
cron job?


The command I am using is /usr/local/bin/rsync -acv --stats /data/


Any ideas, or is this insufficient info, if so, let me know what you need.
