Description

Experience Level: Expert
The aim of the project is to modify an existing checkpointing mechanism to improve the checkpointing system based on certain criteria.
The avialabe checkpointing system checkpoints at a regular interval, say every 10 minutes.

The new checkpointing mechanism must ensure that it checkpoints only at places I want it. That is i will have to place checkpoint calls within my program to trigger the checkpointing mechanism at specific places.
The checkpointing solution will be tested on a parallel program that i will provide.

I will also provide the existing checkpointing solution.
The working environment is linux.

The checkpointing mechsnims is in C language.
