Abstract : This paper presents a communication system designed to allow efficient process migration in a cluster. The proposed system is generic enough to allow the migration of any kind of stream: socket, pipe, char devices. Communicating processes using IP or Unix sockets are transparently migrated with our mechanisms and they can still efficiently communicate after migration. The designed communication system is implemented as part of Kerrighed, a single system image operating system for a cluster based on Linux. Preliminary performance results are presented.
