Doc Text:
_criu_ rebased to version 2.3 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 introduced the *criu* tool as a Technology Preview. This tool implements *Checkpoint/Restore in User-space (CRIU)*, which can be used to freeze a running application and store it as a collection of files. Later, the application can be restored from its frozen state. Note that the *criu* tool depends on *Protocol Buffers*, a language-neutral, platform-neutral extensible mechanism for serializing structured data. The _protobuf_ and _protobuf-c_ packages, which provide this dependency, were also introduced in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 as a Technology Preview. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3, the _criu_ packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Notably, *criu* is now available also on Red Hat Enterprise Linux for POWER, little endian. Additionally, *criu* can now be used for following applications running in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 *runc* container: * vsftpd * apache httpd * sendmail * postgresql * mongodb * mariadb * mysql * tomcat * dnsmasq

Description Adrian Reber 2016-01-07 10:29:28 EST
As long as criu is a technology preview we should try to follow upstream. Upstream is still fast moving and is still implementing important features.

There are already a few backports in the existing criu package for RHEL 7.2 and especially for the PPC64LE support a newer criu version is required.
