       ipmi_watchdog_action - sets action taken if IPMI watchdog timer expires

   Allowed values
   Recommended values
       The value used depends on what the system administrator wants to happen
       if the system can not make forward progress.

       The tunable sets the watchdog timer expiration action on	 systems  with
       the IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) watchdog timer.

       To  tell if a system has this feature use If is listed, the IPMI watch‐
       dog timer is supported.

       HP's Itanium Product Family systems and recent PA RISC systems use IPMI
       as  part	 of  the  system  manageability	 infrastructure.   IPMI uses a
       "watchdog timer" to detect conditions where the	operating  system  has
       hung  or	 is  not  responding.  The action configured using the tunable
       will take place automatically when this situation occurs.

       For instance, if set to the system (or partition, on cellular  systems)
       will hard reset if the OS is hung or not responding.

   Who Is Expected to Change This Tunable?
       System  administrators that want the system to take an action if system
       forward progress stops.

   Restrictions on Changing
       None.  This tunable is dynamic.

   What Other Tunable Values Should Be Changed at the Same Time?

       All HP-UX kernel tunable parameters are release specific.  This parame‐
       ter  may	 be  removed or have its meaning changed in future releases of

       Installation of optional kernel software, from HP or other vendors, may
       cause  changes  to  tunable parameter values.  After installation, some
       tunable parameters may no longer be at the default or recommended  val‐
       ues.  For information about the effects of installation on tunable val‐
       ues, consult the documentation for the kernel software being installed.
