We had some IPCs that has build in hardware watchdogs which can be turned on in the BIOS. Additionally most (if not all) of them had some sort of software API which can be used for a small C-App to trigger/reset it.
Now comes the question: Can the XIBO-WD, in his “Check if XIBO run”-loop, additionally call an external app (eg. hw-wd.exe), which is the app that triggers the hardware watchdog?
If not: Can we implement that feature, based on the code in the GIT repository https://github.com/xibosignage/xibo-windows-client-watchdog (if it is up to date!?), and are you willing to accept the patch as a pull request, so you can implement it upstream for all your users and we don’t have to repatch and compile it every update?
We had professional equipment to support, eg. OPS PCs from NEC, for our signage systems and want to had it as bullet poof as possible.
