Checkpoint-Restart Microconference Accepted into the Linux Plumbers Conference

Following on from the successful Checkpoint-Restart Microconference
last year, we’re pleased to announce that there will be another at
Plumbers in Los Angeles this year.

The agenda this year will focus on specific use cases of Checkpoint-
Restart, such as High Performance Computing, state saving uses such as
job scheduling and hot standby.  In addition we’ll be looking at
enhancements such as performance and using userfaultfd for dirty memory
tracking in iterative migration and what it would take to have
unprivileged checkpoint-restart.  Finally, we’ll have discussions on
checkpoint-restart aware applications and what sort of testing needs to
be applied to the upstream kernel to prevent any checkpoint-restore API
breakage as it evolves.

For more details on this, please see this microconference’s wiki page.

We hope to see you there!
