comment tar + rsync + untar. Any speed benefit over just rsync?
I found an interesting read stating that with scp and rsync the delay is to be blamed to different reasons: scp behaving basically like I described, but rsync optimizing network payload at the increased cost of building up large data structures for handling that. I've included that into my answer and will check on it this weekend.

revised Is there a file search engine like “Everything” in Linux?
Found that Everything is just an additional layer as well.

comment tar + rsync + untar. Any speed benefit over just rsync?
Syncing smaller files individually through rsync or scp results in each file starting at least one own data packet over the net. If the file is small and the packets are many, this results in increased protocol overhead. Now count in that there are more than one data packets for each file by means of rsync protocol as well (transferring checksums, comparing...), the protocol overhead quickly builds up. See Wikipedia on MTU size

The snapshot capability isn't the cause of the problem - see my answer below. But being able to release a snapshot can work miracles in resolving it, as you have correctly described :)
