int public int txn_checkpoint(int kbyte, int min, int flags) throws DbException;


The DbEnv.txn_checkpoint method flushes the underlying memory pool, writes a checkpoint record to the log, and then flushes the log.

If either kbyte or min is non-zero, the checkpoint is done only if there has been activity since the last checkpoint, and either more than min minutes have passed since the last checkpoint or if more than kbyte kilobytes of log data have been written since the last checkpoint.

The flags value must be set to 0 or the following value:

Force a checkpoint record, even if there has been no activity since the last checkpoint.

The DbEnv.txn_checkpoint method throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure, and returns Db.DB_INCOMPLETE if there were pages that needed to be written to complete the checkpoint but that DbEnv.memp_sync was unable to write immediately.


The DbEnv.txn_checkpoint method may fail and throw an exception encapsulating a non-zero error for the following conditions:

An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.

The DbEnv.txn_checkpoint method may fail and throw an exception for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the DbEnv.txn_checkpoint method may fail and throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
