If using it in a local network, I would recommend communicating via an
rsync daemon, not via ssh. ssh can add significant overhead if CPU is
already limited.

This means running an rsync daemon on ris, and then configuring dirvish
on ulises to backup an rsync module (in the tree: line, use
":modulename" instead of "/path/to/files").
