Yeah, might be that this is the bottleneck. In this case I indeed suggest to
split the backup in two parts: Rdiff-backup locally (quick, robust, no need
for transmissions) and let rsync do the transmission to the target. The
latter might be a lot quicker than a transmission using rdiff-backup, for
rsync usually supposes two files to be identical if filesize and timestamp
