    Service watchdog does not restart anything, it's not a service. Looks like you don't have cron running.



  • I do have cron running and installed and i can see the watchdogs crontab entry

    No, not the Cron package. It's not any service either. The cron binary.

    
    ps ax | grep /usr/sbin/cron
    
    

    (And if you see the watchdog entry, the Service Watchdog package is working perfectly fine. That's all it does - create a script and add it to crontab.)
