That's a tougher one, but FWIW the work required on the master cluster
is low compared to what the slave has to do; the master just needs to
read a bunch of edits and send them whereas the slave has to write
them to the WAL, add them to the MemStore, eventually flush and
compact, etc.

Also if you had a big MR job that ran on the master and that inserted
a lot of data, I would assume that it made everything slower. If it's
also what caused swapping then it would explain a lot.
