I found an article describing how to enable the Raspberry Pi hardware watchdog timer to have devices recover from any potential hardware or kernel lockups:
Other than a Balena post from 2016 at Keeping Your System Running with a Host OS Watchdog and a few mentions on the Balena forum I could not find any clear documentation.
- Is it possible to enable the hardware watchdog timer on recent versions of BalenaOS?
- Is this in any way bad practice?
We are running a Compute Module 3 using the Raspberry Pi 3 32bit BalenaOS base image.
