Re: BDB checkpointing overhead

If I use the checkpointing feature in the bdb backend, if there were no
changes made to the directory since the previous checkpoint, is there
any overhead other than waking up the code to check to see if the
database is to be synced?

If there are no unsynced changes, does anything get written to disk or
logged in any way when the checkpointing code wakes up?

A timestamp will be written to the transaction log files.
