Spes, the initial import is done by taking an LVM snapshot on the master and copying the raw files over to the slave. For the snapshot we lock all tables in mysql, freeze xfs, then lvm snapshot. We rsync the data over to the slave and then fire it up. We have found this to be the fastest way to get the data over. A dump & import would take much longer and much more cpu resources.
