As part of the example, I forgot to include the --no-whole-file parameter as I
was trying to demo it on the same system.

But the same happens: if the new source file has slightly changed from partial
upload file, it uploads everything and ignores the delta algorithm

[root@]# rsync -a --verbose --progress  --partial-dir=/root/partial
--no-whole-file dir1/myfile.out dir2/myfile.out sending incremental file list
    10485766 100%   10.21MB/s    0:00:00 (xfer#1, to-check=0/1)

10485766  speedup is 1.00
