Recovery Interval not optimal

The SQL Server “Recovery Time Interval” setting used to be ‘0’ by default, which could have a performance impact during a Checkpoint, by amplifying lazywriter contention.

Indirect checkpointing can alleviate this and has been available since SQL Server 2012. Indeed the default value was changed to ’60’ (seconds) from SQL Server 2016 onwards.
