* Checkpointing makes use of the ``pickle`` python package. Objects will only be restored as far as they support pickling. This is the case for Python's basic data types, ``numpy`` arrays and many other objects. Still, pickling support cannot be taken for granted.

* Pickling support of the :class:`espressomd.system.System` instance and contained objects such as bonded and non-bonded interactions and electrostatics methods. However, there are many more combinations of active interactions and algorithms then can be tested.

* The active actors, i.e., the content of ``system.actors``, are checkpointed. For lattice-Boltzmann fluids, this only includes the parameters such as the lattice constant (``agrid``). The actual flow field has to be saved separately with the lattice-Boltzmann specific methods
:meth:`espressomd.lb.HydrodynamicInteraction.save_checkpoint`
and loaded via :meth:`espressomd.lb.HydrodynamicInteraction.load_checkpoint` after restoring the checkpoint
and loaded via :meth:`espressomd.lb.HydrodynamicInteraction.load_checkpoint` after restoring the checkpoint.

* References between Python objects are not maintained during checkpointing. For example, if an instance of a shape and an instance of a constraint containing the shape are checkpointed, these two objects are equal before checkpointing but independent copies which have the same parameters after restoring the checkpoint. Changing one will no longer affect the other.
