Checkpoint Method

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The Checkpoint method forces a write of dirty database pages.

.Checkpoint( )


Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

HRESULT Checkpoint();

For an instance of Microsoft SQL Server, database checkpoints are performed automatically and at user direction. Checkpoints verify the consistency of data and a database can be configured for log truncation on a checkpoint, as consistency is assumed when a checkpoint occurs. For more information about SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) and checkpoints, see TruncateLogOnCheckpoint Property and ConfigValue Object.
