I have been using rsync to copy a large backup file from a remote host to my QNAP NAS. It's been working fine until recently. It seems like almost every time when it executes it's giving a time out after 15s. Following is what I have captured in the log. Any ideas?

2013-11-10 23:10:01 HKT - Executing: rsync -t -v -e ssh backup@* /share/homes/backup/backup/web/database  
[receiver] io timeout after 10 seconds -- exiting  
rsync error: timeout in data send/receive (code 30) at io.c(140) [receiver=3.0.7]  
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (73 bytes received so far) [generator]  
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(601) [generator=3.0.7]  
2013-11-10 23:10:15 HKT - Done rsync
