Forked checkpointing is not enabled by default, only compression is.

Hi Gene , Kapil

concerning using DMTCP to checkpoint/restart MPI application:

i know that compression is enabled by default

i need to know if Forked checkpoint is enabled by default ? or i need to enable it ?

 can i know what makes DMTCP faster than other previous techniques concerning Checkpoint and restart times?

thank you
