#111 closed enhancement (fixed)

watchdogd voor sshd?

Resource needed to fix:


Als om een of andere reden sshd niet meer draait kunnen we een node niet bereiken en moeten we fietsen. Een 'watchdog' op sshd die in zo'n geval de node reboot zou een oplossing kunnen zijn.

The most easy way for adding watchdog support for ALIX2D3 under FreeBSD is by using the watchdog functionality as implemented by the kernel (watchdogd).

Real watchdog support is somehow more interesting, cause allows the kernel to die as well. This how-ever is a bit more cu-cumbersome as ALIX HW Watchdog support is AFAIK as I know not build-in yet.

NetBSD has imported the OpenBSD code gcscpcib(4) to support this. For FreeBSD the best hint I can find is in sys/i386/i386/geode.c

watchdogd(4) will do the trick.
