OpenBSD up to and including 6.0 was limited to 256KB buffers, with
100ms RTT this limits you to 2.5Mbit/sec max (second form on
Update both sides to -current, it has larger buffers and some other
changes to reduce the potential risk from the added kernel memory use.
The kernel is normally auto-tuning these days, if you want to force it
on a connection you can use setsockopt(). rsync gives an easy way to set
this, i.e. "--sockopts=SO_RCVBUF=262144".
