Politehnica University of Bucharest developed a snapshot system for bhyve. It would be nice to integrate it into existing code.

This functionality makes great use of CBSD:

This project has been superseded by the bhyve migration project. The goal is to provide warm & live migration in addition to the save & restore features. It's still under active development and not all of the bug fixes applied to the migration repo have been applied to save_restore repo. It's probably best to wait for the code and review process to be completed.

I will take it as I'm working with the students and I'm very interested on this project too.

Live migration is based on this work, but I'm not sure about “superseded”.
These are different things and in the virtualization world none of these things replace another
