Introduction

The Linux Application Checkpoint-Restart Project (Linux-CR) aims to get core functionality into the upstream Linux kernel to checkpoint, restart, and migrate applications and Linux Containers.

The Linux-CR project is applying to the 2010 Google Summer of code (GoSC) 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

  • 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)

  * Previous open source participation
  * Virtualization experience
* Which project are you interested in?  (If you have your own idea related to checkpoint/restart you can list that too)
* Is there a specific reason for choosing the project you did?  (i.e. crypto interest for TPM)
* If you didn't get paid, what if any coding project would you choose to do?
