My bluetooth logitech mouse and keyboard get laggy when time machine runs. Sometimes I have to sit and wait for several minutes before I can effectively use them when a backup is running. Otherwise , when I move my mouse, it can take up to 30 seconds for the cursor to move.
When the time machine backup completes, my laptop is back to normal - lightning speed responsiveness.

I did some research and found this TM scheduler utility, but I don’t know if it’s any good.
There is another app called Time Machine Editor that might also do the trick. It says it can schedule and also have backups run only when my machine is idle.
Has anyone here used either of these apps? or even a different app?
Please let me know below in the comments.
Update: I should have mentioned That my Macbook Pro has both wired and wireless network connections. I don’t know which connection TM uses.
I also should have noted that I am backup to a Time Machine network share hosted by my Synology server. I’m going to check the SMB version while it’s running using the
smbutil statshares -a command.
