Checkpoints cannot only be used to increase fault tolerance, but also to migrate processes. The migration is particularly useful in workstation environments where machines become dynamically available and unavailable. We introduce the CoCheck environment which not only allows the creation of checkpoints, but also provides process migration. The creation of checkpoints of PVM applications is explained and we show how this service can be used in a resource manager.
