There are several ways you can pause or disable cluster replication depending on the purposes you wish to achieve.
If you wish to stop the Cluster Replicator temporarily, it is best to pause it rather than to stop it completely. When you pause the Cluster Replicator, it continues to store pending cluster replication events in memory and continues to store the Cluster Database Directory in memory.
If you stop the Cluster Replicator, these things are deleted from memory. If you choose to stop cluster replication, you should replicate manually when you restart the Cluster Replicator to replicate any changes that were lost when the Cluster Replicator stopped. You do not have to replicate manually when you pause the Cluster Replicator.
When you pause the Cluster Replicator, it finishes processing the current task and then stops taking new requests until you resume cluster replication.
If you do need to stop or disable cluster replication, you may wish to stop cluster replication for the current server session only, or you can prevent cluster replication from starting when the server starts, or you can disable cluster replication entirely. If you stop cluster replication for the current session only, cluster replication starts again the next time the server starts. Disabling cluster replication has no effect on scheduled replication, which still occurs.
 
PAUSING CLUSTER REPLICATION
The following is excerpted from the Domino Administrator's Guide.
From the Domino Administrator
1. In the Server pane, expand All Servers or expand Clusters.
2. Select the server you want.
3. Click the Server - Status tab.
4. In the Task pane, click Server Tasks.
5. In the Results pane, select the Cluster Replicator.
6. In the Tools pane, expand Task, and then click Tell.
7. Click Pause, and then click OK
From the Web Administrator
1. In the Server pane, expand All Servers or expand Clusters.
2. Select the server you want.
3. Click the Server - Status tab.
4. In the Task pane, click All Server Tasks.
5. In the Results pane, select the Cluster Replicator.
6. In the Tools pane, expand Task, and then click Tell.
7. Type tell clrepl pause and then click OK.

From the server console
Send the following Domino command from the server console:
tell clrepl pause
RESUMING CLUSTER REPLICATION
From the Domino Administrator
1. In the Server pane, expand All Servers or expand Clusters.
2. Select the server you want.
3. Click the Server - Status tab.
4. In the Task pane, click Server Tasks.
5. In the Results pane, select the Cluster Replicator.
6. In the Tools pane, expand Task, and then click Tell.
7. Click Resume, and then click OK.
From the Web Administrator
1. In the Server pane, expand All Servers or expand Clusters.
2. Select the server you want.
3. Click the Server - Status tab.
4. In the Task pane, click All Server Tasks.
5. In the Results pane, select the Cluster Replicator.
6. In the Tools pane, expand Task, and then click Tell.
7. Type tell clrepl resume and then click OK.
From the server console
Send the following Domino command from the server console:
tell clrepl resume

DISABLING CLUSTER REPLICATION
If you do find it necessary to completely disable to cluster replication, you can use one of the following procedures:
Note Disabling the Cluster Replicator prevents only replication from that server to other cluster servers. It does not prevent replication to the server from other cluster servers.
Disabling cluster replication automatically at server startup
You can use the Domino Administrator or the Web Administrator to configure Domino to disable cluster replication at server startup.
From the Domino Administrator
1. Click the Configuration tab.
2. In the Task pane, expand Server, and then click Configurations.
3. Do one of the following:
• If a Configuration Settings document already exists for the server you want, select that document, and then click Edit Configuration.
• If a Configuration Settings document does not already exist for the server you want, click Add Configuration, and add the name of the server in the "Group or Server name" field on the Basics tab.
4. Click the NOTES.INI Settings tab. 
5. Click Set/Modify Parameters.
6. In the Item field, select or enter DISABLE_CLUSTER_REPLICATOR.
7. In the Value field, enter 1 (one).
8. Click Add, and then click OK.
9. Click Save & Close.
10. Restart the server so the setting takes effect.
Note: To restart cluster replication, set Disable_Cluster_Replicator to 0 (zero) or remove this line from the Configuration Settings document. Then restart the server.
From the Web Administrator
1. Click the Configuration tab.
2. In the Task pane, expand Server, and then click Configurations.
3. Do one of the following:
• If a Configuration Settings document already exists for the server you want, open that document, and then click Edit Server Configuration.
• If a Configuration Settings document does not already exist for the server you want, click Add Configuration, and add the name of the server in the "Group or Server name" field on the Basics tab.
4. Click the NOTES.INI Settings tab.
5. Click Set/Modify Parameters.
6. In the Available Parameters box, click DISABLE_CLUSTER_REPLICATOR, and then click Add.
7. In the Value field, enter 1 (one), and then click OK.
8. Click Save & Close.
9. Restart the server so the setting takes effect.
Disabling cluster replication for the current session only
To disable cluster replication for the current session only, do one of the following.
From the Domino Administrator or the Web Administrator
1. Click the Server - Status tab.
2. In the Task pane, do one of the following:
• From the Domino Administrator, click Server Tasks.
• From the Web Administrator, click All Server Tasks.
3. In the Results pane, select a Cluster Replicator.
4. In the Tools pane, expand Task, and then click Stop.
From the server console
Send the following Domino command from the server console:
tell clrepl quit
Using these procedures shuts down all Cluster Replicators, even if multiple Cluster Replicators are running

If there is an idea buried in here somewhere I certainly can't find it.
2) David Killingsworth4000 (05 Jan 2009)
After reading through this it looks like he is highlighting the issue of having 8 cluster replicators on a hub server for example.

Let's say you need to shut the replicator down: (tell replica quit) shuts all 8 of them down.

To start all 8 of them back up you need to issue load replica 8 times.

Of course, I may be wrong...maybe there's not an idea in there at all.
3) David Killingsworth4000 (05 Jan 2009)
After re-reading this, I realize that he is talking about cluster replication....so disregard my comment above. It doesn't apply.
