WATCHFRR is a daemon that handles failed daemon processes and intelligently restarts them as needed.


WATCHFRR is started as per normal systemd startup and typically does not require end users management.

WATCHFRR commands

show watchfrr

Give status information about the state of the different daemons being watched by WATCHFRR

watchfrr ignore DAEMON

Tell WATCHFRR to ignore a particular DAEMON if it goes unresponsive. This is particularly useful when you are a developer and need to debug a working system, without watchfrr pulling the rug out from under you.
