Mar 14, 2011 Â· Also COMPLETE CHECKPOINT can be divided further into PARTIAL and FULL. In Incremental Checkpoint,checkpoint information is written to the controlfile. In the following cases: 1.Every three second. 2.At the time of log switch - Sometimes log switches may trigger a complete checkpoint , if the next log where the log switch is to take place is Active.
A checkpoint does not cause a log switch, a log switch causes a checkpoint). So, that is the relationship between the two. The reason a log switch fires a checkpoint is because the system wants to get the blocks in the buffer cache that are "protected" by the online redo log we just filled flushed to disk (so we can reuse that redo log file).

However, you can configure log switches to occur at regular intervals, regardless of whether the current redo log file is completely filled. You can also force log switches manually. Oracle Database assigns each redo log file a new log sequence number every time a log switch occurs and LGWR begins writing to it. When the database archives redo ...

By default, a log switch occurs automatically when the current redo log file group fills. You can force a log switch to make the currently active group inactive and available for redo log maintenance operations.
