On a related topic… we’ve noticed that FileUpload performance from buildslaves that are far away (50ms WAN) is horrible, compared to scp or rsync over ssh; about 10X slower.   For us, it’s always that way and doesn’t seem to vary a lot.  The local (LAN) upload performance is fine.   Anyone noticed this and/or have solutions?
