>Okay, with refreshAndPersist, what I see is the master's slapd spike when the replica is first started (up to 20% of the CPU), and then drop back down to near 0 once it is done sending everything (about 5 minutes), so that by itself isn't bad.  I do wonder what happens in a case like ours, where we shutdown all the servers nightly, then restart -- I imagine having 9 replica's start hammering the master within minutes of each other could have a negative effect.

I think you can resolve this by disabling updates on the
master until all the slaves are persisting.  (If there are
no changes, then the refresh part of the refreshAndPersist
will have zero updates plus zero deletes.)

How to temporarily disable updates I leave as an exercise.  :-)
