Welcome to CRIU, a project to implement checkpoint/restore functionality for Linux in userspace.

Checkpoint/Restore In Userspace, or CRIU (pronounced kree-oo, IPA: /krɪʊ/, Russian: криу), is a software tool for Linux operating system. Using this tool, you can freeze a running application (or part of it) and checkpoint it to a hard drive as a collection of files. You can then use the files to restore and run the application from the point it was frozen at. The distinctive feature of the CRIU project is that it is mainly implemented in user space.


Using

Getting packages for your distribution
Or try manual installation to have CRIU on your system

CLI, RPC and C API
Three ways to start using the C/R functionality
Usage scenarios
Ideas how criu can be used (some are crazy indeed)
Category:HOWTO
Collection of real world examples of how to use CRIU. Some are complex, some are not. HOW TO dump a simple loop might be the best one to start with. Also a set of asciinema records for real-life examples.
Category:API
Collection of pages about CRIU's API.
When C/R fails
A sort of troubleshooting guide
What can change after C/R
CRIU cannot (yet) save and restore every single bit of tasks' state. This page describes what bits visible through standard kernel API are such.
What cannot be checkpointed
What an application could do to make CRIU refuse to dump it.

Ways to communicate with CRIU community
