Currently your proxy works in nbd-mode, which considered to be the slowest. Have you considered using Hot-Add mode that involves usage of a proxy-VM?1) I use the Veeam Backup Server as a proxy (Under Backup Infrastructure -> Backup Proxies -> I have, Name: VMware Backup Proxy, Type:VMware, Host:This server)
Not sure that got it right...How the production starge is connected to host? Via FC (maybe FCoE?) or via SAS connector? Please elaborate.2)both ESXi Hosts with their SAS are also connected via Network (4*1GB/s LACP). Basically the Storage is connected locally with Fiber Cables to the ESXi Hosts.
What NIC do you have on your ESXi management interface?3) Shown is Bottleneck: Source (Load: 99%)
What exactly was different?same setup but different hardware,

Awesome! Thank you.*that picture*
I think that you should give it a try, here is a brief explanation of how it works.I haven't used hotadd yet. If it helps, then I'd consider it. I still think it should be ok with this setup.
With your current configuration Network Mode is utilized, you can check it if you view session logs (see those "[nbd]" letters?) which causes data to flow through 1Gb mgmt interfaces and that can be very slow.My mgmt NIC is a normal 1GB/s network card
Please use forum search engine as there a plenty of threads on NFS-related issues.I also had those NFC errors until I patched Veeam
Are you 100% positive that network utilization on ESXi mgmt interface was the same during Linux VM backup session? It might be so that some backups go faster than others due to a lesser load on mgmt interface at the time of backup session, please perform some tests, if possible.I haven't solved the problem yet. Strangely enough the linux VMs backup at a speed of 1GB/s.
