There isn't any these days, there used to be support for BLCR but that's 
been dropped as BLCR is no more.

I know from talking with SchedMD they are of the opinion that any 
current checkpoint/resume code (such as DMTCP [1]) should be supported 
via the users batch script and not in Slurm itself.

All the best,
