NAME

       wd_identify - a simplified software watchdog daemon

SYNOPSIS

       wd_identify [-c filename|--config-file filename]

DESCRIPTION

       This  utility  opens  /dev/watchdog  and  gets the identification string from the watchdog
       which then is printed. The device is closed afterwards.

       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.

OPTIONS

       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
              /etc/watchdog.conf.

FILES

       /dev/watchdog
              The watchdog device.
