I encounter same issue, I have sometimes a huge amount of files to delete.
Rsync daemon can take a lot of time to delete them, leading Rsync client into a

Another similar situation encountered is when the daemon is hard-linking a very
huge amount of files (when the client uses --link-dest) and takes a very long
time to perform this task.

According to Wayne : both sides of the transfer try to periodically send a
keep-alive message if too much time has elapsed since some data was
transferred.  However, Rsync does not always check this enough in some
circumstances. Version 3.1.0 has an improved keep-alive setup that may help.

Note that Wayne has improved keepalive process even after 3.1.0 release :

I have not tested it yet, but I plan to do it to know whether or not it
resolves timeout problems during deletion and hard-linking.
