  • Hi,

    Checkpoint simply put is a way to defer writing information to the database until it is convenient.  This is perfectly safe since the data is written 2 times: it is written to the transaction logs and also to the database.  Since the data is safe in the transaction logs, we can delay writing it to the database file.

    The blog below provide an explanation about Checkpoint Depth, please take it as reference:
