Run a separate pg_dump for larger tables and run them concurrently so
you use more cpu and disk resources.

The lower compression levels are fast and nearly as good (in my testing)
as full compression. Using compression tends to use up the CPU that
would otherwise be wasted since the pg_dump is disk intensive, and then
saves further I/O by reducing the output file size.
