Idle option in rsync

Is there an option in rsync that would lower loading of the disk, 
namely loading on a file write/delete?

For example, in my case it would be great if after a file writing rsync
would sleep for N seconds.

My options:
rsync -v -a -u -S --delete-during --ignore-errors -b --backup-dir=path
--log-file=path --bwlimit=1000 --max-size=size rsync://SRC DST/
