Are your local installed applications slow, or is it only slow when you work at the same time with software, which also uses the network? For example software started from a network share, or when opening larger files from network?
Maybe that the traffic via 445 has lower priority when backing up to VBR and therefore it seems to be slow. On the other hand, when backing up to a CIFS share the data streams are scheduled by Windows
If i am connected via Gbit it works like a charm whether I backup to CIFS or VEEAM Repo. But it is not an option for all my clients
My local applications work well. For example I can work in Excel with large tables, listen music etc. yet all network connected activities fail. You may see what happens even with ping during backup session
