Hello Bert,

Checkpointing in SGE is done each X seconds/minutes/hours when the job 
is running and also if you suspend a job in order to migrate this job 
(qmod -s JOB_ID). But it is configurable in a checkpoint environment. I 
think that by default the checkpoint in SGE doesn't work without 
something additional. It is just a feature that could be integrate with 
a checkpoint mechanism like BLCR (Berkeley Lab Checkpoint/Restart). You 
have to install a mechanism like this and then doing the integration 
with SGE it works.
