If not use the *dmtcp_checkpoint*, kvasir-dtrace will works well. Then, why?
I'm waiting in hope for your advices.
Thanks again.

    Hi. Sorry for the delay in responding. There are two answers to your bug report:
    (1) I see a reference to valgrind. Valgrind is on our radat. But we haven't had a chance to seriously look at the issues necessary to support it. (Valgrind does some very low-level things.) If you'd like to tell us more about your application off-line, we could be persuaded to raise the priority of supporting valgrind. :-) For example, feel free to write to gene@ccs.neu.edu .
    (2) Having said that, your application is SEGFAULTing. DMTCP should not ever be segfaulting. This is a bug that we would like to fix immediately. Is there a chance that you can send us your software so that we could reproduce it locally? Other alternatives might be VNC, guest account at your site, VM with your software, etc. We're eager to find out more about this. Please let us know.
    Thanks, - Gene

    Thanks for your reply:). kvasir-dtrace(contained in the tool of daikon) can be getted from the web sit (http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/daikon/download/daikon.tar.gz). The example appliation *dmtcpaware2* tested by kvasir-dtrace is just the test example given by the DMTCP.:).

    I suspect that this is going to be difficult to diagnose and fix. At the top, kvasir-dtrace is reporting:
    Using Valgrind-3.6.0.SVN and LibVEX
    Because Valgrind does some low-level things, we are aware that DMTCP and Valgrind are currently incompatible.

    So, I can't offer too much hope. But if you'd like me to look further, the most efficient thing would be to talk on the phone, so I can find out exactly how you compiled kvasir-dtrace, and so on I could call you or vice versa, if we arrange a common time. Please write to gene@ccs.neu.edu if you would like to try diagnosing this further, together. But I already see Valgrind diagnosing the low-level system call wrappers of DMTCP in the output that you display. So, right now, I'm not too hopeful of success, since both Valgrind and DMTCP will each want to take control at a very low level. Best wishes, - Gene

    Sorry for the delay in responding.

    Can you provide us some more information about kvasir-dtrace and hopefully we can nail it down?
