    Hi Klaus,

    Thank’s for your demonstration.

    Since the checkpoint occurs in different time depending of “recovery model” that the DB has , my question is if the recovery model is “Simple” , the only transactions that are lost are the Noncommited operations.

      Hello Pedro,

      The recovery model of the database has no influence if you can loose transactions. Even in “Simple” SQL Server shows you the same behavior. The difference of the recovery model is how SQL Server deals with the clearing of the transaction log.



It`s your turn
