Depends on how often you're taking them and how much recovery you
need. For installations with lots of activity or little room for error, I
typically checkpoint once or twice a day and do full daily backups of the
depot tree, checkpoints and journals on both daily and weekly
rotations. In this scheme I usually let the checkpoints and journals age
for a week and make sure that they never get deleted until after the
corresponding backups. In fact, I sometimes set up the cleaner script as a
post-operation for the backup and the checkpoint as a pre-operation.
