SockMi is a mechanism for the migration of a TCP/IP connection between two Linux systems. Only the migrating peer of the connection needs to reside on a Linux system. The migration is completely transparent for the other peer, which can be a system running any operating system. SockMi requires neither changes to existing Linux kernel data structures nor new system calls. SockMi is based on the cooperation of a kernel module and a daemon.
