You've shown us the straces for two of the three processes: the
receiver (on the client) and the sender (on the server), but not the
generator (a second process on the client side).  As far as I can
tell, they are both doing what they should be doing: the receiver is
waiting for a file from the sender, which is waiting for data from the
generator.  We need to know what the generator is doing.  Could you
post its strace?
