[Xen-users] the [watchdog] thread

Hi all,

I wonder if the watchdog in xen PV domUs is documented somewhere ...

Is anyone using it?
How does it work?
What steps are needed in the domU and in the dom0 to enable it?
And: Is / will it also be available in PVOPS kernels?

I ended up writing a xenstore based one in ksh that is in fact quite
robust and kills our VMs if they do their thing* - whereas nothing
else ever kicked in.


*CentOS 5.4: Gods little annoying time machine. Takes you in the
future by 2000 seconds but then leaves you hanging there.

the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
