Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.2 Installation Guide

Watchdog Process

The Watchdog is an Identity Synchronization for Windows Java technology-based process (Java process) that starts, restarts, and stops individual background Java processes. The Watchdog launches and monitors the central logger, system manager, and connectors. The Watchdog does not monitor subcomponents, Message Queue, or the Identity Synchronization for Windows Console.

The Watchdog is installed where you install the Core components and it can be started as a SolarisTM software daemon, Red Hat Linux daemon, or a Windows service.
