I updated my kernel rpm from kernel version kernel-3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64 to kernel version kernel-3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64.After update, a process named watchdogd with pid 49 is continuously running at the background.
I think this process is kernel invoked.
Is there any way to rename kernel processes or is there any way we can manage the startup processes in RHEL 7.4 ? I am unable to find any watchdogd.conf file or any watchdogd.service on my system.
Which script is responsible for startup of these processes and is there any way to change that script or change the startup process name?
ps -ef | grep -i watchdogd
root 49 2 0 04:03 ? 00:00:00 [watchdogd]
root 1592 1563 0 04:04 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto -i watchdogd
