SubjectRe: Suspending a process into disk?
Date
Please check http://www.checkpointing.org.  There are several projects
listed there.

Current general kernel level checkpointing support is still limited (i.e.,
doesn't support all applications in all cases). Two projects you may want
to check: epckpt (a kernel patch) and CRAK (a kernel module).

Subject: Suspending a process into disk?


> Hello All,

> I was wondering, if suspending a specific process into disk and

> Sometimes, I have to delay a necessary (minor) kernel update
