Abstract: A large number of distributed checkpointing protocols have appeared in the literature.a distributed checkpointing protocol could be the best in a specific environment, but not in another environment.Distributed snapshots are an important building block for distributed systems and are useful for constructing checkpointing protocols among other users. Communication-Induced Checkpointing protocols are classified into two categories in the literature: Index-based and Model-based.Recently, more attention has been paid to providing checkpointing protocols for mobile systems. check point is defined as a designated place in a program at which normal processing is interrupted specifically to preserve the status information necessary to allow resumption of processing at a later time. This paper surveys the protocols which have been appeared in the literature for checkpointing in mobile distributed systems.
