Package dmtcp

Distributed MultiThreaded CheckPointing

DMTCP is a tool to transparently checkpoint the state of multiple simultaneous
applications, including multi-threaded and distributed applications. It operates
directly on the user binary executable, without any Linux kernel modules or
other kernel modifications.

Among the applications supported by DMTCP are MPI (various implementations),
OpenMP, MATLAB, Python, Perl, R, and many programming languages and shell
scripting languages. DMTCP also supports GNU screen sessions, including
vim/cscope and emacs. With the use of TightVNC, it can also checkpoint and
restart X Window applications. For a multilib (mixture of 32- and 64-bit
processes), see "./configure --enable-multilib".

DMTCP supports the commonly used OFED API for InfiniBand, as well as its
integration with various implementations of MPI, and resource managers (e.g.,
