Longer migration time leads to more deltas.
The tunneling let the connections persist.
68 total seconds of disruption, which is a lot, but much less than freeze-and-copy.
Ran the Bonnie benchmark as a diabolical process, generating lots of disk writes. Needed to throttle twice. Initially, the bulk transfer is severely impeded and fixed. The overall migration takes 811 s, and without throttling, the transfer would have taken 3 days.
