Server crashed using rsync

I'm trying to make a backup using this command 
    rsync -auvH /home/ /bak --delete --bwlimit=1000 --status
server load has been increased so much and the server crashed, as well
has gone out of memory 
My Server is a Dual Xeon 2.0 GHz with 2GB of Memory + 1GB Swap.
Could be that there are too many files, about 5.000.000, to be backed up
The way the files are structured make very difficult to create several
backup with less files.
Is there any one else facing issues like this ? Is there any workaround
on this ?
Thank you,
Eugen Luca
