Figure out what the bottleneck is.  Since your dataset is enormous, I'm
guessing the issue is that rsync is using too much memory and the system is
swapping.  If this is the case, you should try the current development rsync,
which has an incremental recursion mode that dramatically reduces memory usage.
 If you then find that CPU or disk is the bottleneck and the network is
underutilized, pass --whole-file to disable the delta-transfer algorithm.
