    I haven't checked in awhile but as I remember cPanel backups are made nightly for end users to download... It may have changed though...

    I doubt that it pulls the entire file in a nanosecond, I would imagine that it streams the data from the DB and uses something like zlib on it to make it stream to your PC instantly.

    I really need to know if this .gz offered of the database is real time (from a minute ago) or from an hour, day or week, month?

    The cPanel documentation didn't shed any light on this. Hopefully someone here knows.
    Why should there be a lag?

    It is current as of the minute you make the backup. I made a backup of a site that I am running. I then applied a new design to the site, I opened the gz file with winrar and then manually inserted the tables through phpmyadmin and had my site running again within an hour. A member who signed up just before I closed the site and made the backup was still there.

    Do you have a test board, probably much smaller.

    I rather not download 100+ mb .gz to just test 1 new post
    But .. yer, good idea.

    Wether or not you are trying to back up vB, you can make a post then immediately backup and either check (crtf+f) the database to see if it is there or restore it to your test forums

    I'm not sure either.
    The best place to ask is on cPanels forums;
