watchdog Documentation


software watchdog
The watchdog program writes to /dev/watchdog every ten seconds.
If the device is open but not written to within a minute the machine
will reboot -- a feature available when "software watchdog" support
is compiled into the kernel.
The ability to reboot will depend on the state of the machine
and interrupts.
