[olug] Slow read speeds-SuSE

Ok, my backups from one of my linux servers takes 5 days to finish...my window is 36 hours, not working right.  Throughput of about 1.5GB/hour.  
So in my testing, copying a 158MB directory to the server takes about 1 Minute 5 seconds.  Copying same structure off the box takes almost 7 minutes.  Network switches show no issues/error.  iostat shows slow to no throughput at all on read.  
SO, the million dollar question is, what should I look at for fixing this??  Do I use hdparm?
