This keyword takes one of three arguments: YES, NO, and DETAIL. If YES, each occurrence of an internal FairCom DB Server checkpoint will cause a time stamp message to be sent to the FairCom DB Server console screen and to the CTSTATUS.FCS file. The checkpoint is a snapshot of the FairCom DB Server at an instance in time and is used during automatic recovery. The checkpoint provides for a measure of the system activity. The DETAIL argument causes six intermediate milestones to be output for each checkpoint in addition to the beginning and ending checkpoint messages. These intermediate outputs aid in analyzing how the checkpoint procedure interacts with applications. If there is no system activity, no checkpoints will occur. This keyword should be used for debugging purposes only since performance may be compromised.

Default: NO
