Net::SFTP transfer speed

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Good time of the day,

Could Net::SFTP transfer speed appear low because of Perl limitations?
May it be tuned some way?

Over our intranet, plain sftp (from achieves a 2MByte/sec transfer
rate, while Net::SFTP hangs around 50-60Kbyte/sec. Since I need to transfer
files that are 40-120MBytes in size, this is rather important.

Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks in advance,
