|-
| crtools || Page transfer filters || medium || - || The page-xfer engine just splices the pages from stealing pipes into socket. Packing or encrypting the data would be nice. Maybe it's purely for [[P.Haul]]?
|-
| crtools || Modify restored resources run-time in [[CRIT]] daemon || medium || - || Sometimes it might make sense to tune the objects from images on restore. E.g. change the IP address of sockets from task above or fix file paths to be "chroot-ed". The best solution seems to be in launching CRIT in daemon mode, telling it what images and how to modify and teaching CRIU to "filter" the pb objects read from images through this daemon.
|-
| crtools || TCP socket migration with changed IP || medium || - || It might make sense to migrate a tcp connection on a box with changed IP address _if_ both boxes are NAT-ed to the destination. We will then have to go to NAT box and fix the conntracks in that case and use CRIT images modifucation facilities.
|-
| kernel/crtools || [[TCP repair TODO|TCP repair fixes]] || hard || - || We can dump and restore live [[TCP connection]]. There are some issues with it, that should be fixed.
|-
| crtools/kernel || [[NFS mount points]] support || hard || - || NFS mount points from inside container cannot be easily restored. The thing is -- if we want to restore opened file we will go ahead and [[How hard is it to open a file|call]] the open system call. If the file in question resides on NFS, the latter might need to go to network to check whether the file actually exists and set up the handle. But if the networking is still not restored this operation would fail and we'll have to fail the whole restore. In order to untie this chicken-and-egg problem we may go in two directions.
|-
| kernel || [[Seamless kernel upgrade]] || hard || xemul || Briefly — dump tasks (into memory), change the kernel w/ kexec, then restore tasks back. From the tasks and remote client perspective tasks has just stopped and then resumed on the newer kernel. Can be a good complement to the classic live-patching technology.
