Is checkpoint/restore enough fast to use??
I am interseted in checkpoint/restore mechanism in virtualized environment

I think that current checkpoint/restore in xen is very heavy work. In
previous OS research area, checkpoint/restore had been investigated for
fastness and some other purposes.

Live migration has been researched and published NSDI, VEE and so on. I
think, there is some analogies between live migration and
checkpoint/restore, so some optimazation techniques in migration area may be
applied to checkpoint/restore

Is there any ongoing work or exist feature for checkpoint/restore
optimization in Xen hypervisor?

otherwise, existing method enough fast?
