Introduction

The [| Linux application checkpoint/restart project] aims to get core functionality into the upstream Linux kernel to checkpoint, restart, and migrate applications and [| containers].

The c/r project is applying to the 2010 [|| Google Summer of code] as a mentoring organization.

Mentors

  • Oren Laadan
  • Serge Hallyn

We can be found on [| the containers mailing list] or on #lxcontainers on irc.freenode.net.

Project ideas

  • Porting to ARM might be a good project idea, and seems good for the mentee as it gets them involved in a wider community.
  • Doing the TPM exploitation for signing and verifying images.
  • Handling FUSE filesystems, as I imagine those will be desirable for containers.
  • better diagnostics tools (improve ckptinfo to give more info, to give stats about objects and the entire image), and also add a visualization tool
  • userspace image mangling tools - that allow to change something in the image in a robust way (e.g. change an open file to another file).
  • userspace conversion tools (between versions of checkpoint image)
