Checkpoints?  You should ensure that the checkpoint settings are such
that checkpoints don't happen too often (certainly not oftener than
every five minutes or so), and make sure the bgwriter is configured
to dribble out dirty pages at a reasonable rate, so that the next
checkpoint doesn't have a whole load of stuff to write.
