Process Migration: A Generalized Approach Using a Virtualizing Operating System
Process migration has been used to perform specialized tasks, such as load sharing and checkpoint/restarting long running applications. Implementation typically consists of modifications to existing applications and the creation of specialized support systems, which limit the applicability of the methodology. Off the shelf applications have not benefited from process migration technologies, mainly due to the lack of an effective generalized methodology and facility. The benefits of process migration include mobility, checkpointing, relocation, scheduling and on the fly maintenance. This paper shows how regular, shrink-wrapped applications can be migrated. The approach to migration is to virtualize the application by injecting functionality into running applications and operating systems. Using this scheme, we separate the physical resource bindings of the application and replace it with virtual bindings. This technique is referred to as virtualization. We have developed a virtualizing...
