whole unit watchdog

Maybe I'm missing it but is there a way to cause the whole unit to reboot upon a watchdogged link failure?

At the moment, no I don't believe this is supported, but you can bounce the port, enable/disable the link. Would there be a use in completely rebooting the unit?

I would not put this feature in, no need and could cause more problems then it solves.

Bouncing the port required to reach an IP makes more sense.

I actually have seen an instance where a rocket M2 would stop working and port bounce would not correct it. The only thing that would was to reboot the entire switch. just my personal experience. Can't explain why but it's repeatable.
