>From my experience running Amanda server on FreeBSD:

- I had to disable jumbo frames on FreeBSD, it seems to slow down the
  network more than anything;

- I noticed I have to update all the clients before I update the server.

That may be unrelated to your issue, but I had the same apparent
symptoms: big filesystem would never complete while small are fine.
