Watchdog: Enable power

Sun Dec 15, 2019 12:02 pm

Tools, Watchdog. There is a new option to "Enable power" when the watchdog kicks off. What does this do? A port could be set to 24v or 48v, how does the watchdog know what power setting to enable?

Actually this is a very old option. It has been there since around 2017 somewhere around 1.4.8

It works on a port that already has PoE enabled.

Say you set a watchdog up on Port 2 (where Port 2 is set to 24VH) and you want the watchdog to ping www.google.com and if it fails the "Enable Power" option is selected.

In this case, as long as the switch can ping www.google.com, Port 2 will actually be disabled until the watchdog fails. At which point the watchdog will enable it.
