$ man xfs_info

Do you have a performance problem? I don't think you have - your problem is
that xfsdump is failing for some reason - so this information is

As to your workload, your problem is xfsdump is failing for some
reason. Hence we need to know roughly what xfsdump is running on.
i.e. describe the directory structure/filesystem contents being
backed up....

BTW, don't expect responses to questions in a hour late on friday
night/weekends - if you are lucky someone will be in front of their
computer over a weekend, sometimes you are not so lucky...
