Software and hardware errors are expected to be a much larger issue on exascale systems than current hardware. For this reason, resilience must be a major component of the design of an exascale system. By using containment domains, we propose a resilience scheme that works with the type of codelet-based runtimes expected to be utilized on exascale systems. We implemented a prototype of our containment domain framework in SWARM (SWift Adaptive Runtime Machine), and adapted a Cholesky decomposition program written in SWARM to use this framework. We will demonstrate the feasibility of this approach by showing the low overhead and high adaptability of our framework.
