Maxdb Backup speed


We are running MaxDb on linux with virtulized enviorment. We are trying to take backup of maxdb on a local disk. We are getting a speed of around 8 MB/sec. We understand that backup speed depends on a lot of factors

1) What can be a ideal speed for data backups on disk (We are running on Red Hat Linux on virtualized enviorment)

2) While selecting backup medium there is an option of changing Block Size. Will it impact backup speed??? how can we achive an optimum backup speed???

Also when we try to use veritas netbackup for taking backup on tape we are getting similar speeds.

Requsting your help
