Re: [Condor-users] Checkpointing Condor's vanilla universe jobs.

Hi José,

Thanks for your feedback. What you suggest should not be too difficult to add, so if you're interested I can send you a modified version of the code for you to test.

I used it to my Condor cluster and it works greatly. Only a suggestion: you can trap Condor's signals to force to your programs to make a checkpoint. When Condor vacates a program, it sends it a signal (killsig) (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/manual/v7.0/2_7Priorities_Preemption.html#SECTION00373000000000000000)
Trapping this signal, programs could make a checkpoint before stop.

In case it's of use or interest to anyone else on this mailing list,
I've written some notes on how one can use Parrot and the BLCR kernel
modules to transparently checkpoint Condor's vanilla universe jobs. The

This is recent/ongoing work, so feedback and/or bug reports back to me
