gbak will backup a remote database to a local file!
gbak -B -user "sysdba" -password "masterkey"
will backup from the remote server over the wire to my local drive
This process does NOT, however, reduce the CPU activity at the server over
doing it locally. So I see no saving as far as you are trying to accomplish.
