As an example, I transfered 1930420 KBytes with rsync between two 2.8 GHz Intel P4 machines over gigabit ethernet and got this:

transfer method:    ssh   rsh    nfs  rsync
wall time in sec 130.01 79.77 176.03  74.92
        MBit/sec    116   189     86    201

Mind you, this is no benchmark as I only did each on once and wasn't particularly careful that nothing else was running on the two machines or on the network.
