 The progress meter is automatically shut off when the output is sent to the
 terminal. So, if you just do 'curl -T [file] [URL]' it won't show any progress
 You can make it appear by adding "-o [file", "-O" or even just redirecting the
 output with ">".

Ok. Now how do I make it exit out of terminal mode sooner? It seems that curl waits an extra 15 seconds after it finishes uploading the file. Or is there a more appropriate option for uploading files (provided I want to see realtime progress)?

Here is my command line:

>curl -T my_big_log.log http://my_URL/ >1
