In the scenario you describe, I don't think the sync -f will have
any greater impact than a normal sync. It should also be
unnecessary in this situation.
Does your client contain a lot of files, enough to cause a long
compute time before the sync starts transferring files?
What are the symptoms of your poor performance? Are users
having to wait a long time when they do syncs/submits before
