syncrepl (re)sends the entire entry, so it's a lot more intense than your typical MOD. I seem to be the only person willing to live with this, but it's quite common to use "delta-syncrepl" instead, which only sends the changed attributes. There should be ample documentation out there; read up and come back if you have questions. (I'll probably change off of traditional syncrepl when I move production to 2.4.)

Oh, very good point, I'd forgotten that bit (I'm one of those delta-syncrepl users. :P ).
