You said you changed the buffer size with the -w option to the ftp tool. I
question if that -w option really changes the size of the same kind of buffer
that curl is using for its 16K. It could just as well be a more low level TCP
buffer or whatever. I really can't tell since I have no idea what the ftp tool
does nor what the -w option does.
I'm just a sceptic by nature when it comes to trying to compare something when
we know one side very intimately and we're only guessing about the other side.
If you transfer a somewhat small file and do some careful network analysis,
can you see what kind of network differences there are?
Are there any tools that can detect/trace system calls and their timings so
that we can see how they differ between the tools?
