It is not documented but if you want a bit more (internal & technical) details:

I think you can increase the size of the log files and the checkpoint
interval by setting the following properties:
The default for the first one is 1 MB, ie. a new log file is created
for every 1 MB written to the log, and a check point is done for every
10 MB of log (every 10 log files).
Hope this helps,
