Recovering from OS crashes has traditionally been done using reboot or checkpoint-restart mechanisms. Such techniques either fail to preserve the state before the crash happens or require modifications to applications. To eliminate these problems, we present a novel OS-hyper visor infrastructure for automated OS crash diagnosis and recovery in virtual(More)
