Berkeley Lab Checkpoint/Restart for Linux (BLCR)
This package implements system-level checkpointing of scientific applications
in a manner suitable for implementing preemption, migration and fault recovery
by a batch scheduler.
BLCR includes documented interfaces for a cooperating applications or
libraries to implement extensions to the checkpoint system, such as
consistent checkpointing of distributed MPI applications.
Using this package with an appropriate MPI implementation, the vast majority
of scientific applications which use MPI for communucation on Linux clusters
are checkpointable without any modifications to the application source code.
You must also install the blcr-libs package and a blcr-modules_* package
matching your kernel version.
