CHECKPOINT - force a transaction log checkpoint
Write-Ahead Logging (WAL) puts a checkpoint in the transaction log every so often. (To
adjust the automatic checkpoint interval, see the run-time configuration options CHECK-
POINT_SEGMENTS and CHECKPOINT_TIMEOUT.) The CHECKPOINT command forces an immediate check-
point when the command is issued, without waiting for a scheduled checkpoint.
A checkpoint is a point in the transaction log sequence at which all data files have been
updated to reflect the information in the log. All data files will be flushed to disk.
Refer to the PostgreSQL Administrator's Guide for more information about the WAL system.
Only superusers may call CHECKPOINT. The command is not intended for use during normal
