Apart from what Shawn already wrote about NFS, which I completely agree
with, rsync always runs two processes on the receiving end, one to
communicate with the sender, and one to handle the file IO (very
simplified explanation...). Hence that's perfectly normal.

I usually run daily backups, for some critical things where a lot of
work is done during the day I run dirvish additionally at 10:00, 12:30,

I never run dirvish less frequently than daily.
