Why is upload done in bursts?

Hello everyone

I added a large directory to a library on mp desktop PC and Seafile is synchronizing it to my server. The synchronization seems to happen in bursts rather than continuously:

What could be the reason for such behaviour (nothing special is happening on the PC or the server)?

The files are first indexed and deduplicated. This happens in batches.


Iā€™m in agreement with Shoeper. Also, Seafile chunks each file individually, so there will be some lag time there too.
