Ansible Galaxy

An Ansible role for installing and configuring the software watchdog daemon provided by the Linux kernel.

This role installs the watchdog apt package and configures /etc/watchdog.conf according to values defined in defaults/main.yml.

Installation

To install from Ansible Galaxy:

$ ansible-galaxy install whiskerlabs.watchdog

Or alternatively, add the path to a local copy of this repository to roles_path within your project's ansible.cfg file:

roles_path = /path/to/role_dir

where /path/to/role_dir is a parent directory of ansible-watchdog.

Consult Ansible documentation for more info on how to configure roles_path in an Ansible configuration file.

Requirements

Target hosts must be Linux machines running a Debian-based distro. The only reason for this is because apt is currently used to install the watchdog package.

ansible-watchdog has no role dependencies.

Role Variables

See documentation in defaults/main.yml.
