It's really not doing that much I/O - it's both receiving and transmitting about 3Mb/s over the network and reading and writing a similar amount (it's basically symmetrical: network->disk->disk->network).

But thanks - I'll take a deeper look if it turns into a real problem rather than a potential one.
