A checkpoint is a user-defined marker in the SRL that can be used to synchronize the Secondary when the application is active, or to restore the Secondary data volumes from backup. For information on using checkpoints for synchronization, see Synchronizing the Secondary and starting replication. For information on using checkpoints for backing up and restoring a Secondary, see Backing up the Secondary.
This section describes how you can work with checkpoints. For general information about checkpoints, see Understanding checkpoints.
