1. Software Watchdog Settings

Allxon Software Watchdog is a very useful feature that helps minimize operation downtime. Software Watchdog monitors your applications and ensures that unexpected system crashes are immediately attended to and automatically fixed by remotely relaunching the application.

Follow the steps to set up Software Watchdog on Windows, Linux, and Android:

  1. Windows / Linux
    • Click on “+”

    • Click Save to save changes.
  2. Android
    • Click on “+”

    • Click Save to save changes.

2. Collect Logs Settings

Commands can be sent to trigger the Agent to collect logs. The log path format has to be precise for the command to work. For your convenience, you can set up to 5 sets of log settings (with 8 log paths) that command the Agent to collect the logs periodically, or for you to collect the logs manually.

To Add a new setting for collecting the logs, click on “+

You will be asked to fill in the following details:

  • Schedule to periodically collect logs (optional)

    <💡Note > If you do not set the periodical schedule, the Agent will not follow accordingly. However, this setting will still be available for you to Get Device Logs Immediately on the Device Profile Page (refer to Get Device Log section under 6.4.2 Remote Device Management).

  • Log package name (required)
  • Log path (must include at least one path)
  • Click Save to save changes
