You need to speed up your source filesystem to achieve better
performance. Use raid10 or get a SSD. It has nothing at all to do with
your tape or bacula speed if you hard drive can not read what it needs
to backup at the maximum network speed. Or do not worry so much how
much time a single backup is taking and enable concurrency and
spooling. These will better utilize the speed of your tape drive.
