I've been using boxbackup for a while and it is a great
application. Many thanks to the authors for such a wonderful tool!

I have one annoyance, though: bbstored does its housekeeping, which in
my case both consumes a lot of CPU time and does a lot of I/O, which
slows the server machine down a lot.

Is that much housekeeping really needed? Is there any way to reduce the
load on the server?
