    maybe uncommon question but how do i speedup backup

    currently i made already seetings

    extracpus = 16

    but somehow load wont go much over 4 and backup is very slow - 300GB need 12 hours

    is there any other way to increase spped?

    running cPanel 11.25.0-R44675 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9
    CENTOS 5.5 i686 standard

    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 975 @ 3.33GHz

    which shows 8 cores

    so load @ 8 would be just fine

    ( i just tried 16 to max out server performance but wont work )

    thx in advance
    cheers

    maybe its the pkgacct - username - av: 3

    av: 3 - limiting load to 3 ?

    where can i change this ?
