System generated checkpoints

System generated checkpoints are enabled by default. Once the system detects a configuration change, a 300 second timeout counter is initiated. For each additional configuration change, the 300 second timeout counter is reset. Once the timeout limit is reached with no additional configuration changes detected, the system will automatically generate a new checkpoint.

This system generated checkpoint is listed as CPC with a time stamp in the list of checkpoints, for example: CPC20170630073127. The time stamp in the checkpoint name is interpreted as <YYYYMMDDHHMMSS>.

These checkpoints can be applied using the checkpoint rollback feature or copy command during connectivity loss or a power failure.

A maximum of 32 system checkpoints can be stored in the database. Beyond this limit, the newest system checkpoint replaces the oldest system generated checkpoint. The limit of system checkpoints does not contend with limit of user generated checkpoints.
