Network Connectivity, Process Migration, Twin
Most of processes running on a computer need network connections to communicate with other processes and access resources such as files, databases, and so on. Network addressing protocols are tightly coupled with physical addresses. When a process migrates, all of these connections are torn. While these connections are essential to running a process, the process may crash. And process migration becomes an inapplicable approach. We have developed a new method which maintains network connectivity across process migration. Our solution is based on API interception and removes the need for modification of operating system or applications. It also removes disadvantages of other approaches that are based on the API interception and offers a better performance.
