I would begin by with a structure that defines the state of the process and the resources it is using, much like the OS does. A process migrating to another machine, as opposed to another processor on the same machine, will be more difficult to implement. Is this the sort of thing you're asking?

so what can be done to solve the problem of this process migration ,i mean can anything be done to transfer one process from one system to another in a network

Sure. That's why there's a subject called 'process migration'. As I mentioned, it isn't a trivial thing to do. It requires that you research it, or hire it done.

sir,if we consider a c program which is working on some machine in a network if it is to be migrated then we thought is we will keep it executing that is using infinite loop then if that programs contents are transferred then can it be restarted on another machine?
