Tool for transparent checkpointing and restarting of processes
'chpox' provides transparent checkpointing and restarting of processes on Linux clusters. It was originally designed for recovery of jobs with a long execution time in case of system crashes, power failures, etc. It works with openMosix, is SMP safe, works as a kernel module, does not require kernel patches or program recompiling/relinking, and supports virtual memory, regular open files, pipes, *nix domain sockets, current directory, termios, and child processes.
