qemu's watchdog does not work?
Last modified: 2016-01-14 11:31:33 EST
Description of problem:
I have this in my guest:
<watchdog model='i6300esb' action='reset'>
<address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x08' function='0x0'/>
and even though watchdog.service(with plain-vanilla config) is stopped the guess is fine, up & running.
Is this expected?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Since you are using centos, and this is really more of a config question than a bug, please take this to an upstream mailing list like firstname.lastname@example.org
But you say that watchdog.service is _stopped_ inside the VM... it needs to be running. There's some more info here: https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2010/03/03/what-is-a-watchdog/
sorry, my understanding was that hardware (here qemu's watchdog) would take action(reboot) the system if there is no ping from the OS watchdog, so I thought stopping watchdog service in VM should be a quick test.
I'll check mailing list. Many thanks
