for years I have used CentOS for our server landscape. Now I decided
to give Debian a try.
Welcome to Debian!

I sincerely hope you will appreciate Debian.

I just set up a Stretch 9.8 system supposed to become our main backup
server. So I set up a backup job wih rsync. But the going is really
very very slooooow. Trying to figure out what's happening:

   * iperf -c [host] => bandwith almost 1000 Mbit, that's fine.
   * dd if=/dev/zero of=/daten/testfile bs=1G count=10 oflag=direct =>
     10737418240 Bytes (11 GB, 10 GiB) kopiert, 40,4992 s, 265 MB/s, so
     that's fine as well

But whenever I try to rsync, cp or scp - whether copy files on the local
hard disk only or over the network - speed goes down to 500 kB/s.

Filesystem is ext4.

I don't have any clue about what's going on. Any kind of help would be
appreciated, thank you!
Is _only_ transfer speed affected?

I am no expert in this, but imagine that if you rsync massive amounts
involving hardlinks then memory becomes a problem too.

Perhaps run atop to monitor bottlenecks live

It is most definitely not a memory or cpu problem. It's a HP Proliant
with 32 GB RAM and a Intel Xeon CPU 2.40GHz with 4 cores. Also the
problem stays the same if I just copy one large file.

Check if it's related to the disk speed (hdparm and/or iotop).
