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 ?
