I keep an unused local replica on my master server to help create new

With SyncRepl it's even easier; just configure the slave to suck over
whatever you need, fire up "slapd", and stand back...
I never used SyncRepl, but after reading about it, I somehow feel that
changes are replicated to the slaves not when the changes are made on
the master (which is almost immediate with slurpd), but when a slave
wants, i.e. slave queries the master several times an hour (and causing
unneeded traffic sometimes, especially when there are many slaves).
Or do I perhaps understand SyncRepl quite wrong? :)
