I disable display saving some seconds.
I enabled log and time did not change that much...
I execute this command (out.txt is dump)

cat out.txt | grep ^Received | perl -ne 'if (/header/) {
s/(\d+\.\d{6})//; $begin = $1; if ($end) { while ($begin < $end) {
$begin += 60; } $local += $begin - $end } } else { s/(\d+\.\d{6})//;
$end = $1; if ($begin) { while ($end < $begin) { $end += 60; } $wire +=
$end - $begin } } END {print "wire time $wire - local time $local\n";}'

To get time spent on wire and local (well, is not accurate, some wire
time are marked as local..)

wire time 26.7019729999999 - local time 18.7550250000001

So it spend most of the time waiting data (if server was slower than
local wire should be much lower)...
