Title: Adaptive multi-level checkpointing

Abstract

In some examples, with respect to adaptive multi-level checkpointing, a transfer parameter associated with transfer of checkpoint data from a node-local storage to a parallel file system may be ascertained for the checkpoint data stored in the node-local storage. The transfer parameter may be compared to a specified transfer parameter threshold. A determination may be made, based on the comparison of the transfer parameter to the specified transfer parameter threshold, as to whether to transfer the checkpoint data from the node-local storage to the parallel file system.
