I read following article in Wiki about perforce....


"Database tables are stored as binary files. Checkpoints and
journals<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transaction_checkpoint> are
written as text files that can be compressed and offloaded. A database
that has been corrupted by hardware failure or other catastrophe can be
recovered from the most recent journal and checkpoint. Administrators
must plan for disaster recovery by configuring database journaling and
setting up regular checkpoints."

My Question is: How to setup Checkpoint in database? Is there any link
or help I can get it from here....
