       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.
