Re: Why scp use time for transfer file less than sftp?
The SFTP protocol requires more effort by client implementors to get
good throughput than SCP; a naive implementation will often perform
(The situation is complicated because 'scp' commands will sometimes use
SFTP as a backend protocol, so a difference will not always be seen.)
I have the impression that most current versions of SFTP clients do not
have the problem. (I know that at least a new release of PSFTP, 0.54,
was made recently with performance improvements.)
(Are there any "current" versions of SFTP clients which still suffer
from this performance issue? If not, it's probably worth a FAQ entry
somewhere with advice like "upgrade your SFTP client".)
