wd_identify - a simplified software watchdog daemon
wd_identify [-c filename|--config-file filename]
This utility opens /dev/watchdog and gets the identification string
from the watchdog which then is printed. The device is closed
The wd_identify tool can only be used without causing a reboot if your
kernel is compiled with the CONFIG_WATCHDOG_NOWAYOUT option enabled.
Watchdog and/or wd_keepalive may have to be stopped to make sure that
wd_identify can access the watchdog device.
Available command line options are the following:
-c config-file, --config-file config-file
Use config-file as the configuration file instead of the default
The watchdog device.
