Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Checkpoint an MPI process
From: Josh Hursey (jjhursey_at_[hidden])

Currently Open MPI only supports the checkpointing of the whole
application. There has been some work on uncoordinated checkpointing with
message logging, though I do not know the state of that work with regards
to availability. That work has been undertaken by the University of
Tennessee Knoxville, so maybe they can provide more information.
