rsync taking too much time

I am using rsync protocol to synchronize files from my machine to remote server.I have 60,000 files (size 6 kb each).
Now the problem is that after running for about 2 hrs it just does not exit.
It just waits after completing the sync process.
I have a proxy timeout of 30 mins.
I have added timeout option with rsync but then also it remains idle for that duration (duration of timeout).
So if the timeout is 1 hr then the total time taken by rsync to complete is (2+1)hrs.
Is there any other way i can effectively use rsync?My intention is to make rsync take less time to sync.
I agree. Here's the link:
