Updated text:17 July 2006

A checkpoint forces any modified pages that are in memory to be written to the disk. Checkpoints are automatically issued at intervals that are determined by the Recovery Interval SQL Server configuration option. The Checkpoint method issues a checkpoint immediately, regardless of the Recovery Interval settings.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.

Example

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server
'Reference the AdventureWorks database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks")
'Note, to use the StringCollection type the System.Collections.Specialized system namespace must be included in the imports statements.
Dim sc As StringCollection
'Run the CheckTables method and display the results from the returned StringCollection variable.
sc = db.CheckTables(RepairType.None)
Dim c As Integer
For c = 0 To sc.Count - 1
    Console.WriteLine(sc.Item(c))
Next
