So,

I think that we blacklist all hardware watchdog module, we can keep nmi watchdog enabled.

but in the wiki,

we need to add a note:

if you want to use hardware watchdog, you need to disable nmi_watchdog=0
and load hardware watchdog in /etc/modules.


common hardware watchdog are :

intel itco (ich chipset motherboard, almost any intel motherboard since 15years):

/etc/modules
------------
iTCO_wdt
iTCO_vendor_support


dell idrac or generic ipmi:

/etc/modules
------------
ipmi_watchdog


hp lio:

/etc/modules
------------
hpwdt

They are also a "nowatchdog" grub option, to disable nmi watchdog (hard-lockup) & soft-lockup

About nmi watchdog, 

I have it enabled, even if no watchdog module is loaded. 

The only way I have found to disable it is to pass "nmi_watchdog=0" 
to grub. 


cat /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog to see if it's enable or not. 

(I can't load idrac ipmi_watchdog until it's disable)

在 2015年12月2日,下午7:08,Dietmar Maurer < dietmar at proxmox.com > 写道: 
I will ship a blacklist for all watchdog modules with newer kernels: 

https://git.proxmox.com/?p=pve-kernel.git;a=commitdiff;h=acea917faa9ef4974f984b9b2dc612e73d22d220 

With latest kernel you can show that blacklist with: 

# cat /lib/modprobe.d/blacklist_pve-kernel-4.2.6-1-pve.conf 




for me. maybe it's can working of the dell r710.
