    What about adding the HPN patches to SSH?

    HPN-SSH

    My understanding is it won't make SSH faster between me and the server, but it will make things faster when my server attempts to download updates over SSH from Yum etc.

    Anytime you patch SSH it's a security risk, but this only changes the frame size, not the underlying crypto.

    If you google there's a lot of folks using it--been around for 10+ years. Here's the Hacker News thread: HPN-SSH: High Performance ssh and scp | Hacker News

    Interesting thanks for the heads up :)

    Although I doubt I'd touch SSH on the server seeing as it's YUM package and not source compiled.
