Hello,

Checkpoints are usually used to signify the successful completion of a logical unit of work (LUW).

A restart typically begins after the last successful checkpoint.

I know of no generic checkpoint/restart modules - the whole area of backup, recovery, checkpoint, restart, etc is usually implemented across an environment, not just one program.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
