       opal-checkpoint   -   Checkpoint   a   running  sequential  process  using  the  Open  PAL
       Checkpoint/Restart Service (CRS).

       Note: This should only be used by the user if the application  being  checkpointed  is  an
       OPAL-only  application.  If  it  is an Open RTE or Open MPI program their respective tools
       should be used.


       opal-checkpoint [ options ] <PID>


       opal-checkpoint will attempt to notify a running process that it has been  requested  that
       the process checkpoint itself. A snapshot handle reference is presented to the user, which
       is used in opal_restart to restart the process.

       <PID>     Process ID of the running target process.

       -h | --help
                 Display help for this command

       --term    After checkpointing the running process, terminate it.

       -v | --verbose
                 Enable verbose output for debugging.

       -n | --name
                 Request a specific name for the local snapshot reference.

       -w | --where
                 Request that the local snapshot reference be placed in a specific location.

       -gmca | --gmca <key> <value>
                 Pass global MCA parameters that are applicable to all  contexts.  <key>  is  the
                 parameter name; <value> is the parameter value.

       -mca | --mca <key> <value>
                 Send arguments to various MCA modules.


       opal-checkpoint  can  be  invoked multiple, non-overlapping times. This allows the user to
       take involuntary checkpoints of a running sequential process.  See  opal_crs(7)  for  more
       information about the CRS framework and components. It is convenient to note that the user
       does not need to spectify the  checkpointer  to  be  used  here,  as  that  is  determined
       completely by the running process being checkpointed.
