Suspend2: Fast and flexible suspend-to-disk for Linux

Seminar

This paper will discuss the suspend-to-disk implementation 'Suspend2'. Suspend2 is a patch to the kernel and associated user-space tools which provides a fast and flexible hibernation facility for Linux.

I'll cover the movitation and aims in development, the method by which suspending is achieved, the API for extensions and give a demonstration. I'll also discuss the current issues with getting suspend to work reliably on a variety of systems.

Nigel Cunningham

After some years preparing for the Christian Ministry, Nigel recently began working as a software engineer for Cyclades, a Brazil based company specialising in out-of-band server management.

Nigel initially began using Linux while at theological college, after getting tired of the instability of Windows. He quickly became a user of the suspend-to-disk functionality, and has since ended up being the main developer of the soon (hopefully!) to be merged Suspend2 project.
