rsync big file

I have a cron job to rsync one directory from one server to another
every 5 minutes. There are some really big files. So it happens when
the second instance of rsync tries to copy the same file when the
first instance is not done yet. It drives my CPU crazy on the source
server. Is there a way to avoid this problem?
