what is the difference between running this script every 5 mins and
having a "checkpoint 5 X"   directive in slapd.conf?

In OpenLDAP 2.1 and 2.2 the checkpoint directive acts as follows - *when there is a write operation*, and more than <check> minutes have occurred since the last checkpoint, perform the checkpoint. If more than <check> minutes pass after a write without any other write operations occurring, no checkpoint is performed, so it's possible to lose the last write that occurred.

In OpenLDAP 2.3 this behavior has been changed; checkpoints occur every <check> minutes as I already mentioned in my previous email here.
