Are you running gbak from your local client machine against a remote
server/database and creating the backup file on your local machine? I If
so, this is not a good idea from a performance perspective.

And even when doing that "locally" on the Firebird server, try to run
the backup through the Services API (services manager) to by-pass the
TCP stack.

For example:

gbak -b -g -v -service xx.xx.xx.14:service_mgr -user sysdba -password
masterkey e:\fdb\gestoc_asolo.fdb e:\backup\gestoc_asolo.fbk
