Low Network Utilization in Remote Disk Backup via SAP FTP

Hi gurus,

I'm running whole online backup + redo log to backup my SAP server to backup server via SAPFTP (remote disk backup).

I'm using 100Mbps network connection between the two servers, with SAP server configured to 'maximize data throughput for network application'.

When I copy data from SAP Server to backup server manually, the speed is OK (around 98% network utilization).

But when I use put command in program RSFTP002 (SAPFTP) for the same file, the network utilization is just around 10%.

I use Windows Server 2003 x64 for SAP Server, and Windows Server 2008 x64 for Backup Server.

Each has adequate RAM, 8GB for SAP Server and 4GB for Backup Server.

Is this technical problem or is it because backup is considered background process, thus lowering its speed?

Help will be very much appreciated.
