Elapsed Time

Syntax: Checkpoint [client] [every] n [ (allow min to max) ] seconds/minutes

Default: Checkpoint client every 0 seconds (disabled)

This Checkpoint option specifies the elapsed time (in seconds or minutes) when DATABridge is processing the audit trail, not the time difference when the updates actually occurred.

When this option is specified, DBEngine checks the current time of day at each QPT. If that amount of time has elapsed since the last commit, DBEngine causes another commit.

Elapsed-time checkpoint frequency is useful for making transactions available to the client sooner when the mainframe is heavily loaded.
