You might be able to get some information about the process by getting 
its PID from "ps", and running:

   ls -l /proc/<pid>/fd

There should be three rsync processes, and I don't remember off the top 
of my head which one you should be looking at.  Check all of them.  One 
should have files open in the source, and another should have files open 
in the destination.  If those don't change periodically, it might 
indicate that the directories they have open are extremely large, so 
look at those.
