SuperDuper! causing overheating

While I realize SuperDuper is processor intensive...I just want to make sure it's not causing unnecessary hardware stress. Every time it runs my fan speed (on a late 2008 solid aluminum MacBook) goes from 2000 to over 6000 for most of the duration of the backup. It's trying to compensate for the increased CPU temps during the backup. Is this normal? Is doing this daily harmful?
