You indicate that theslow performance is at "random times".  I assume this
means that at other times backups are what you would normally expect.

This could be really tough . . . It could be . . .
  - a problem on the client node not sending the data
  - a network problem
  - a problem on the TSM server
  - paging on either server
  - intermittant hdwr problem, cabling problem, etc, etc

The next time it occurs, besides looking at performance data
on each server, I'd try and copy a big file from the client node
to the TSM server, and to some 2nd server - ie:  does a non-tsm
transfer have the same problem, and, is the problem TSM specific or
a generic problem.
