I know this doesn't answer your question; I don't use that feature myself. I
do use rsync for my backups, and what I've noticed is that the first time I
do a backup it uses a lot of system resources, especially I/O, which causes
a high server load. After that, rsync doesn't take too long and there's not
much additional load.
You may not need the limiting features unless you will be doing a full
backup every day, and if you are, don't use rsync.
