You wrote in a previous comment when I asked why rsync is considering a file
for 30 minutes if it is not checksumming it:

To which I replied that there is no noticable network activity when rsync is in
this state. However, when it is finished with the 'consideration phase' the
network is saturated.

I think it is weird that transferring a 25 GB file doesn't generate any network
activity when rsync is in the 'consideration phase' but transferring the same
file when rsync is in another phase saturates the network.
