I had a look at the ovirt feature page and asked some libvirt folks
well, and it all looks good to me except that the libvirt
documentation says that an event when watchdog fires will be added in
the future. That event has been added. The watchdog should work
pretty much identically to the physical world: configure the virtual
watchdog card in the guest hardware description and install the
watchdog daemon in the guest.
Do you happen do know why the shutdown action is not recommended?
