NAME

wdctl - show hardware watchdog status  

SYNOPSIS

wdctl [options] [device...]  

DESCRIPTION

Show hardware watchdog status. The default device is /dev/watchdog. If more than one device is specified then the output is separated by one blank line.

If the device is already used or user has no permissions to read from the device than wdctl reads data from sysfs. In this case information about supported features (flags) might be missing.

Note that the number of supported watchdog features is hardware specific.

-F, --noflags
Do not print information about flags.
-I, --noident
Do not print watchdog identity information.
-n, --noheadings
Do not print a header line for flags table.
-o, --output list

-O, --oneline
Print all wanted information on one line in key="value" output format.
-r, --raw
