Checkpoint of an in-memory database is the main source of a persistent database image surviving a software crash, or a power outage, and is, together with transactions logs, a foundation for transaction durability. Since checkpoints are created simultaneously with transaction processing, they tend to decrease database throughput and increase its memory footprint. Of the current methods, most efficient are the fuzzy checkpoint algorithms that write dirty pages to disk and require transaction… CONTINUE READING
