Re: very poor cygwin scp performance in some situations

----- Original Message ----- From: "Pedro Inacio"

I'm starting to think that openssl have some performance issues on cygwin.
my fixed non-blocking echo_server.c with openssl is too slow when compared with the same code compiled on Linux.

is something like 40ms on Linux to 1040ms on Cygwin.

I've just hacked in a patch to use 8191 as the buffer size in ssh instead of 16384 and now have the following results:

On FreeBSD from Cygwin -> FreeBSD 650KB/s was 700KB/s On Cygwin from Cygwin -> FreeBSD 2.1MB/s was 1.2MB/s
On FreeBSD from FreeBSD -> Cygwin 1.5MB/s was 6.4MB/s

So there may be something to the buffer size impacting performance.
