What's your value of tramp-chunksize? (Use C-h v to find out; it may
also be useful to read the documentation you find there. You may need
to switch to the *tramp/foo* buffer before hitting C-h v.)
Some connections to remote hosts are flaky, and Tramp circumvents the
problem by sending stuff slowly. If tramp-chunksize is not nil, then
you have a flaky connection.
One possibility is to use an out-of-band method (like scp) to transfer
the files. Then the file transfer itself happens by invoking the
program scp. Here the slow-down does not happen.
Oops... sorry... First, the wrong title as I was trying
to be lazy and just replied on other's msg. Second, it seems that
tramp verbose level 5 tells the spot - it's at "Decoding region into
I guess this is unavoidable... or is there some Emacs modules that I
have missed which renders the slow process?

Subject: Re: tramp (2.1.7); ssh not default method
When saving remote files thru tramp ssh (2.1.7, running on
Cygwin Emacs 188.8.131.52
), my PC CPU surges to near 100% with both in/out network traffic
peaking also. By setting verbose level to 8, it seems to be stuck at
"Tramp: process-buffer nil", then "Tramp: check-remote-echo nil". At
level 10, it stays pretty static at "Tramp: process-buffer nil", then
blinks a few times for "Tramp: *tramp/ssh address@hidden run".
Actually, what was tramp trying to do?
