Containers and checkpoint/restore

Not scheduled
LPC Microconference Proposals


The usual containers and checkpoint/restore micro-conference.

We will be discussing recent advancements in container technologies with some of the usual candidates being:

  • CGroupV2 feature parity with CGroupV1
  • Emulation of various files and system calls through FUSE and/or Seccomp
  • Dealing with the eBPF-ification of the world
  • Making user namespaces more accessible
  • VFS idmap improvements

On the checkpoint/restore front, some of the potential topics include:

  • Restoring FUSE services
  • Handling GPUs
  • Dealing with restartable sequences

And quite likely a variety of other container and checkpoint/restore topics as things evolve between now and the event.

Past editions of this micro-conference have been the source of many developments in the Linux kernel, including:

  • PIDfds
  • VFS idmap
  • FUSE in user namespace
  • Unprivileged overlayfs
  • Time namespace
  • A variety of CRIU features and checkpoint/restore kernel interfaces
