This report provides an introduction to resilience methods. The emphasis is on checkpointing, the de-facto standard technique for resilience in High Performance Computing. We present the main two protocols, namely coordinated checkpointing and hierarchical checkpointing. Then we introduce performance models and use them to assess the performance of theses protocols. We cover the Young/Daly formula for the optimal period and much more! Next we explain how the efficiency of checkpointing can be… CONTINUE READING
