Server Watchdog

Posted by Jesse on December 14, 2010

This is a followup to this post.  It seems there's a more graceful option to reboot the server when there are problems.

These instructions are for debian

1. Add the following lines to /etc/sysctl.conf 
    kernel.panic = 60
    kernel.panic_on_oops = 60

2. server:~#  apt-get install watchdog

3. In /etc/watchdog.conf, uncomment the following:
    file = /var/log/messages
    watchdog-device = /dev/watchdog

    [ You may want to play with some of the other settings, most 
      notibly ping.  I didnt have luck with it, however.  My server 
      constantly rebooted ]

4. server:~# /sbin/modprobe softdog

5. add the following to /etc/modules

6. Reboot
