That's kind of a stiff order, Matt! Can't affect the performance of the
production box? I don't know if that can be achieved.

When you start fetching that data off the drives to send it (ftp was a
good plan) it is going to busy out the drive arms and the data channels
from the drive controllers. No matter what, this will cause conflict
with live jobs.

Did you try just giving it a terrible priority? Like 55 or something? It
will take forever and it will still cause some delays (data has to
physically move so that takes time and hardware use), but it might be
gentle enough on your live box to live with.
