Just to check how long it takes to move a large amount of data over a
network, I started a copy of a 32GB directory over a 100Mb/s network
using a Windows client and a Samba server.  It said it would take 50
minutes.  At this rate, copying 200GB would take over five hours.  This
is quite a bit longer than I expected, but I hadn't done the math to
check transfer rate against size.

Assuming that you actually intended to use the word "replication" there
(and not something like "rebuild"), this tells me that your network is
considerably faster than 100 megabits per second, probably gigabit, and
that the bottleneck is the speed of the disks.

I see a previous thread where you asked about optimization performance,
so it sounds like you are optimizing the master index which causes a
full replication to slaves.  This is one of the reasons that
optimization is generally not recommended except on very small indexes
or indexes that do not change very often.
