A write-close can happen on transfer failure. It also can happen multiple times if you are doing a parallel transfer.

I've a directory that is watched for the event write-close.
When I get this event I assume that the file is received totally.

 Is it correct? What is the behavior of openssh when a transfer failed? (
Server side ).
