I'm thinking about setting up a HA PVE Cluster.  However 
https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/High_Availability suggests to use the 
iTCO_wdt hardware watchdog.  As far as I understand, this watchdog is 
only available on the Intel platform.  Our servers would be AMD servers 
and I cannot find the /dev/watchdog device on these hosts (currently 
running openSuSE 13.2).

What other fencing methods can be used if no iTCO_wdt watchdog is 
available?  All documentation referring to other fencing methods (iDRAC, 
iLO, IPMI ecc.) explicitely refers to old PVE versions.  Can this 
documentation still be used or is there other documentation that I 
haven't found so far?
