Subject Re: quick question on dirty pages and check pointing
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2017 14:44:33 GMT
Hi John,

Process of checkpointing makes all dirty pages to be written to disk. As
result they will become clean (non dirty)

When checkpoiting is not running, dirty page can't be evicted (if
Persistent Data storage mode is enabled). Only clean page may be evicted
from memory.

In the same time too much dirty pages (for example 75%) will trigger
checkpoint process.
