Abstract

A transport layer protocol for highly-available network services by means of transparent migration of the server endpoint of a live connection between cooperating servers that provide the same service is presented. The protocol provides a minimal interface to the OS for exporting/importing a per-connection application state snapshot by a server. An operational prototype of this protocol has been implemented in FreeBSD.
