There is nothing inside SGE which provides such a facility.

Nevertheless, if you have some sort of checkpointing and restart capability available outside of SGE provided by your application already, then SGE can be configured to use/support this by definition of a checkpointing configuration (`man checkpoint` resp. `man sge_ckpt`).
