We believe that the hang occurred while the sftp component was transferring a file.

In at least some cases, we believe that there may have been concurrent access to the source file. The file may have been written to, or renamed, while the transfer was in process. 

We would expect concurrent tampering with the source file to cause an exception during the download. However, we only saw hangs. We stream the sftp transfer into a file on the destination system, and we could see that it was created and usually remained at zero bytes and locked. We had to kill the service process that transfers the file in order to recover.

However, we do see, from our own logs, that an exception is occurring during a Dispose() of either the stream that is reading from the ftpclient, or the ftpclient itself. We donít have line numbers from the stack trace, so we canít be certain which of these threw an exception. It seems to us that a Dispose should not be throwing an exception like this. 
Hereís the diagnostic info we captured:

<exceptionSet Type="Error">
               <exception>
                       <time>2014-12-15T11:05:02.3756274-06:00</time>
                       <process>Dart.Ssh</process>
                       <exceptionclass>System.IO.IOException</exceptionclass>
                       <message>Unexpected end of sftp stream.</message>
                       <context>Ftp.ProcessIncoming: Communication error on channel Catalogs and Order Guides</context>
                       <userId>NOLOGIN</userId>
                       <loginUnitName>US Foods</loginUnitName>
                       <other>Void 2M(Byte[], Int32, Int32)</other>
                       <stackTrace>  at 2.6.2M(Byte[] , Int32 , Int32 )
                              at 2.6.2u(Int32 )
                              at 2.6.32()
                              at 1.3.Dispose(Boolean disposing)
                       at CBORD.NetMenu.Framework.UIBL.FtpChannel.ProcessIncomingData(IInterfaceEngine engine, Object arg, Nullable`1 transmissionId)</stackTrace>
               </exception>
</exceptionSet>



Here's our basic transfer logic, with some parts omitted for brevity.

try
{
        using (var conn = Connect(engine, ctx))
        {
                       ...
                       using (var outFileStream = File.Create(workFilePath))
                       {
                              using (var reader = conn.OpenRead(fileToProcess.FullPath))
                              {
                                      try
                                      {
                                             reader.CopyTo(outFileStream);
       
                                      }
                                      catch (Exception)
                                      {
                                             filePartiallyCopied = true;
                                             throw;
                                      }
                              }
                       }
        }              
}       
catch (Exception e)
{
        // try to delete partially copied file.
        if (filePartiallyCopied && workFilePath != null && File.Exists(workFilePath))
        {
               try
               {
                       File.Delete(workFilePath);
               }
               catch (Exception)
               {
               }
        }
        ...
        return;
        }
}
