Checkpointing is only done during a write operation. After a write is
completed, the BDB library checks to see if it has been more than X
minutes since the last checkpoint. But it does not have a periodic timer

We are writing new entries may be once every 2 days.

How can I force BDB to save the entries in the cache (since the last checkpoint) before the server shutdown?

You should look at running the BDB db_checkpoint command in the background.
