Does Postgres CHECKPOINT process affect async streaming replication in any way?
If checkpoint_timeout is increased from 5min (default) to 30min, then CHECKPOINT processes will be triggered less often (some other parameters needs to be adjusted as well). If primary node crashes, then it will probably take more time to recover. But I have Patroni configured and it will failover primary to the other node in case of crash.
My question is - will failover last longer if checkpoints on old primary node are triggered less often?
I think it should not affect failover process, because WAL records are already replicated and applied on secondary node, but I want to confirm that.
