Default How to activate gnome-watchdog

I recently installed Philipp Hanselmann's gnome-watchdog package on my server (which is Hardy), but it doesn't seem to have taken effect. Do I need to do anything special to get it started?

Todd,

It should just run. Which version do you have?

You can download the one I have been using in Hardy (successfully) here:

You should see something like this.

more /var/log/syslog | grep watchdog

There is an another script from gnome-watchdog maker:

"The script it's prevents that user starting the same program more than
once."

Default How to activate gnome-watchdog

Thanks. I downloaded version 0.9.2 from Jordan's site and it seems to
work with Hardy. 0.9 wasn't, but I didn't investigate exactly why. I'm
just happy I don't have to slay students when their clients lock up
anymore.

I also relented and ordered 30 512MB chips and now students aren't
getting lock-ups anymore. On the one hand, it's a shame I couldn't
figure out how to get the 128MB clients working. On the other hand, I
got them for about $16/client including shipping, so it didn't
increase the cost of the clients by too much.

On a related note, anybody want to buy 30 128MB PC2700 chips? :-)
(The clients only have a single slot.)

Default How to activate gnome-watchdog

It looks like I found somewhat of an issue with gnome-watchdog-0.9.2 -
in checking up on one of the servers that it's been on since 9/9, I see
some stale processes still, and looks like it's got a few of these
pertaining to the users of the stale processes:


---
# ps aux|grep sleep
9-00130 32698 0.0 0.0 3068 724 ? S 10:18 0:00 sleep 3

labtech 32749 0.0 0.0 3068 724 ? S 10:18 0:00 sleep 3
---

So somehow, it's not catching everyone. Any ideas? The gnome-watchdog is
just a script:

---
# file /usr/share/gnome-watchdog/gnome-watchdog
/usr/share/gnome-watchdog/gnome-watchdog: Bourne-Again shell script text
executable
---

Any help or troubleshooting guidance appreciated. Thanks!

Hey Todd,

I was wondering what you were using for thin clients. We had the same
issue with Devon IT 6030's and started ordering them with 512 MB ram
installed instead of 128mb. The issue for us was that the thin clients
use system ram to do video as well so you were really looking at 128
mb minus about 30 megs or so for X. With 512 MB they run pretty well,
at least on 7.04

We do successfully run LTSP on clients with 128 mb ram, but those
clients have video cards with some ram on-board.

They're Devon ITs, 6020P's, I think. With 512MB of memory, they seem to be doing great.
