comment Which is better for website backup - rsync or git push
I've added some performance data; which shows that rsync is nearly always faster than git. However, I like your points about the extra power of having git repos on the live server - I'm wondering if a hybrid approach isn't best, with changes being pushed into the git repo, and then git repos being rsynced to the backup server...

comment Howto Monitor, Identify and Debug slow requests in Apache2
This article suggests extra data that you could put into the Apache log to get more information about individual requests. With specific applicability to my question above was this titbit: "The %T and %D directives refer to the time it takes to handle the entire transaction, including the amount of time it takes for the client to transmit data. If you see wide variances in the amount of time it takes to serve the same file, it may be related to a web client network problem." Of course this still leaves you with the problem of how to monitor the log files and identify slow requests
