Controlling PXI-8110 watchdog

We are running a resource intensive application on the PXI-8110 and during the operation, the 8110 reboots.  I believe this may be a built-in watchdog function?  Is there any way to control this?  Thanks.

Hi Wirehead,


You're right that the 8110 includes an onboard watchdog timer device, but this device won't reboot the system unless you explicitly arm it to do so.  In other words, the timer must be enabled by software (using LabVIEW VIs), otherwise it cannot restart the system.


What OS are you using, and what is your application doing when it restarts?  Does it always restart at the same point of execution?
