FWIW, I've found that rsync over ssh over a 1 Gbit link has a bottleneck
at the platter, not the cpu. Of course, that's with
electrically-connected drives (SAS, SATA).
It depends on the computer. I ran tests with a SATA drive on a 2GH machine
and Gb ethernet, and it was ssh that was the bottleneck. With a faster
it is possible that disk access would be the bottleneck. ( If I ran rsync
straight-- ie rsync->rsync daemon which does not go through ssh) I got
about 50-80% higher throughput.
As another data point, when I've compared sending a large file (e.g.
knoppix iso image) via rsync/ssh and netcat, netcat usually took half
as long. That was done on pata/sata attached drives in my office on
either 100M or gig ethernet.
