Perhaps as Eberhard suggested, ionice might be useful and is
part of the util-linux-ng package...
-c The scheduling class. 1 for real time, 2 for best-effort,
3 for idle.
Idle. A program running with idle io priority will only get
disk time when no other program has asked for disk io for
a defined grace period. The impact of idle io processes on
normal system activity should be zero. This scheduling
class does not take a priority argument.
ionice -c3 rsync ... etc
