Backup jobs stay in a Queue state Active running for a long time - not proceeding

I have some backup jobs, that stay for about 4h in this state.

If i kill the remote Agent, the jobs finishes fast and goes to the next task - Duplicate to tape.

This is on Windows 2019 Std, fully patches with BE 20.6
Remote Agent is Windows 2016, systemstate backup..

How can i speed up this

Exclude the BE services from any active antivirus scan and check again. I've seen an AV cause slow backups before because of this.

I already excluded complete C:\Program Files\Veritas\Backup Exec and all BE services.
I even disabled Windows Defender ... for testing (doesn´t change anything)

Backup jobs start with about 1.200MB/min and after Half of the Data (13GB).
It slows down for about 3-4h before it finishes.

If the remote Server does a simle Backup2Disk with Windows Server Backup,
it takes about 6-8 Minutes for 32GB.

Backup Exec is sloooow......
