Kiosk WatchDog service

The main purpose of WatchDog service is monitoring Kiosk operation and reacting if problem occurs (browser or Flash plug-in crashing, Windows hanging, hacking attempts etc.). WatchDog is installed automatically during Kiosk installation and it will auto-start on Windows start-up. Kiosk is constantly sending pings to WatchDog during proper operation, if there is interruption which lasts longer than predefined time period, WatchDog has the ability to restart Kiosk application. Default behavior is taking no actions.

To configure Watchdog behavior, please go to Kiosk - Setup - WatchDog page and uncheck “No Actions” option. The following options will be revealed:

“Restart Kiosk if no ping after” Use this option to force Kiosk restart if it’s not sending pings to WatchDog longer than specified time period
“Restart Kiosk always in”  Configure this option to force Kiosk restart at desired time of the day. Use the “Except” option to specify date range when this rule will not be used.
“Restart Kiosk if no login user for” WatchDog will force Kiosk restart if no one logins in specified time period. Use the “Except” option to specify time of the day when this rule will not be used.
