Consistent checkpointing provides transparent fault tolerance for long-running
distributed applications. Performance measurements of an implementation of consistent checkpointing are described. The measurements show that consistent checkpointing performs remarkably well. Eight computation-intensive distributed applications were executed on a network of 16 diskless Sun-3/60 workstations, and the performance without checkpointing was compared to the performance with consistent checkpoints
