I would like to increase the time the watchdog takes to restart Xibo from the current couple of seconds to 2 minutes. I have changed some of the variables in the watchdog config file without a lot of luck. Anybody know how I can do this?
Which Player are you using please?
On windows that would be these two parameters:
<setting name="PollingInterval" serializeAs="String"> <value>120</value> </setting> <setting name="Threshold" serializeAs="String"> <value>300</value> </setting>
I am using a windows player. I have made those changes but I can’t seem to get more than about 45 seconds before the watchdog starts the player again.
Taking a look at the code- if the player has gone completely and is closed, as in your case, then the threshold doesn’t apply. The threshold is an activity threshold to try and detect a hung process, not a closed process.
The only mechanism you have then is to use the Polling Interval - how long it takes to restart will then depend somewhat on where in the polling interval it happens to be.
