What is the Watchdog Process?


Watchdog is a Sentinel Process that manages other Sentinel Processes. If a process other than Watchdog stops, Watchdog will report this and will then restart that process. For Windows, Watchdog is a service and is called eSecurity. If this service is stopped, it will stop all Sentinel processes on that machine.
