I think I need to decrement the threads count (currently at 4)?

    Hi Randy,
    I suppose you have two choices: you can reduce the number of threads or reduce the "Maximum Transfer Size" value to 524288, which is the value used in the successful retry. Personally I would reduce max transfer size as the better option because taking it down to 524288 will not reduce performance as much as taking it down to two or three threads.
