HW watchdog monitoring filesystem (nfsroot)?

Mon Sep 15, 2014 12:02 pm


Can hardware watchdog monitor nfsroot and what is proper configuration to achieve it?

I have watchdog running fine and rebooting on kernel panics, but when I plug out network cable and lose root fs, there is no kernel panic to force reboot, watchdog is not rebooting RPI, although system is unresponsive and all I get is kernel messages that it is waiting for nfsroot.

So, when nfs server is not reachable system hangs and waits for it, but watchdog sees nothing bad in that.

Any ideas?
