Containers track

Wednesday, November 2, 2016 from 9:30am12:30pm
Sweeney AB

The Linux Plumbers 2016 containers track is focusing on Linux containers, both kernel space and user space.

The structure will be the usual set of quick project updates, followed by more topical discussions (devices, security, …)

* Record and vPlay: Debugging Container-App-Crashes with "Partial Checkpoints"

Loosely based on Dinesh Subhraveti's PhD thesis, the vPlay system enables the minimal runtime state of the container to be captured such that when restored, application would retrace its execution for a specified time interval. The key observation is that during the last moments of an application crash, where the root cause typically lies, the application only accesses a small subset of its address space and only those pages need to be saved. The technique, dubbed partial checkpointing, is combined with logging to be used for debugging. Because all interactions of the application with the kernel are logged, the execution can be natively replayed even on BSD or Windows. (slides)
