What are the fastest backup settings for a cPanel server? I have used the builtin backup for a number of years but have been experimenting with jetbackup. Which of these will be fastest?

Compressed
Uncompressed
Incremental

Also which would be fastest when using an offsite repository for backups. With either cPanel backup or jetbackup. Jetbackup writes directly to the offsite repository.

Incremental backups are generally faster. Jetbackup sometimes becomes unresponsive when there are larger backups as I have seen.

I am using the incremental backup. I will suggest the same. You can run them daily, weekly or monthly. You can schedule them in the way that they will run on the time when there is less load on the server. Off-business hours are suggested for it. The mid-night when there is less traffic that time you can schedule them.

Incremental of course is the faster. The compressed one is the worst in terms of time and resources and can cause performance penalty during the backup process. But it can save your disk space compared to 2 other you mentioned.
