       dmtcp_launch -- start a process under DMTCP control.


       dmtcp_launch [OPTIONS] <command> [args...]


       dmtcp_command is a tool to send user commands to the dmtcp_coordinator remotely.


   Connecting to the DMTCP Coordinator
       -h, --host hostname (environment variable DMTCP_HOST)
               Hostname where dmtcp_coordinator is run (default: localhost)

       -p, --port port (environment variable DMTCP_PORT)
               Port where dmtcp_coordinator is run (default: 7779)

       --port-file filename
               File  to  write  listener  port  number.   (Useful with --port 0, which is used to
              assign a random port)

       -j, --join
               Join an existing coordinator, raise error if one doesn't already exist

               Create a new coordinator at the given port. Fail if  one  already  exists  on  the
              given  port.  The  port  can be specified with --port, or with environment variable
              DMTCP_PORT. If no port is specified, start coordinator at a random  port  (same  as
              specifying port '0').

               Execute the process in stand-alone coordinator-less mode.
              Use dmtcp_command or --interval to request checkpoints.

       -i, -interval seconds (environment variable DMTCP_CHECKPOINT_INTERVAL)
               Time  in  seconds  between  automatic  checkpoints.   0 implies never (manual ckpt
              only); if not set and no env var, use default value  set  in  dmtcp_coordinator  or
              dmtcp_command.  Not allowed if --join is specified

   Checkpoint image generation
       --gzip, --no-gzip (environment variable DMTCP_GZIP=[01])
               Enable/disable compression of checkpoint images (default: 1 (enabled))
              WARNING: gzip adds seconds. Without gzip, ckpt is often < 1s

       --ckptdir path (environment variable DMTCP_CHECKPOINT_DIR)
               Directory to store checkpoint images (default: curr dir at launch)

               Checkpoint open files and restore old working dir. (default: do neither)

               Deprecated. Use --ckpt-open-files instead.

       --ckpt-signal signum
               Signal number used internally by DMTCP for checkpointing (default: 12)

       --mtcp-checkpoint-signal signum
               Deprecated. Use --ckpt-signal instead.

   Enable/disable plugins
       --with-plugin plugins (environment variable DMTCP_PLUGIN)
               Colon-separated  list  of  DMTCP  plugins  to  be preloaded with DMTCP.  (Absolute
              pathnames are required.)

       --batch-queue, --rm
               Enable support for resource managers (Torque PBS and SLURM).  (default: disabled)

               Enable support for PTRACE system call for gdb/strace etc. (default: disabled)

               Update environment variables based on the environment on the restart  host  (e.g.,
              DISPLAY=$DISPLAY). This can be set in a file dmtcp_env.txt.  (default: disabled)

       --ib, --infiniband
               Enable InfiniBand plugin. (default: disabled)

       --disable-alloc-plugin (environment variable DMTCP_ALLOC_PLUGIN=[01])
               Disable alloc plugin (default: enabled).

       --disable-dl-plugin (environment variable DMTCP_DL_PLUGIN=[01])
               Disable dl plugin (default: enabled).

       --disable-all-plugins (EXPERTS ONLY, FOR DEBUGGING)
               Disable all plugins.

   Other options
       --prefix path
               Prefix where DMTCP is installed on remote nodes.

       --tmpdir path (environment variable DMTCP_TMPDIR)
               Directory   to   store  temporary  files  (default:  $TMDPIR/dmtcp-$USER@$HOST  or

       -q, --quiet (or set environment variable DMTCP_QUIET = 0, 1, or 2)
               Skip NOTE messages; if given twice, also skip WARNINGs

               Print this message and exit.

               Print version information and exit.
