= Checkpoint/Restore

Contents

Summary

Add support to checkpoint and restore processes. Checkpointing processes can be used for fault tolerance and/or load balancing.

Checkpointing a process in regular intervals can help to restart a process if it might crash to resume/restart/restore the calculation without too much data lost. Providing this ability transparent at the OS level removes the need to implement this functionality for all processes manually.

Checkpointing and restoring a process to another system can be used to migrate a process, process tree or container to another system to distribute the load during the runtime and also for maintenance without service interruption like it is possible with virtual machines.
