The program monitoring and control mechanisms of virtualization tools are becoming increasingly standardized and advanced. Together with checkpointing, these can be used for general program analysis tools. We explore this idea with an architecture we call Checkpoint-based Fault Injection (CFI), and two concrete implementations using different existing virtualization tools: DMTCP and SBUML. The implementations show interesting trade-offs in versatility and performance as well as the generality
