Is there a reason you can't just take the checkpoints less frequently?

I'm using mpich 2.1.5  compiled to use blcr checkpoint.
I'm having problems with the checkpoint interval.
When I execute:
mpiexec -ckpointlib blcr -ckpoint-prefix /partnfs/mpichchk -ckpoint-interval 120 -f maquinas -n 16 ./bt.C.16

In fact,  at the second 120, the execution is interrupted for checkpointing, but, as the checkpoint last more than 120 seconds, another checkpoint is immediately triggered instead of resuming the application.
I only achieve to get a checkpoint by setting a checkpoint interval almost at the end of the execution but it is not useful.

How can I solve it?
Besides, Is there a way to know how long is the checkpoint in time?

Thank you very much.
