0002411: watchdog - add hard-kill
(rep by Daniel Lopez)

Would then be the recommended way to work to set all watchdog ports on
all resin.conf files to be the same one? I'm thinking that might be
causing some of the issues as "side effect".

I understand the reason to use a well-known port, but sometimes the
instances stop responding due to some application misbehaving (in our
case, usually a DB breaks connections the wrong way and ends up
blocking the JVM) and that's the time to kill the process manually. We
have some scripts to check the status of the OS processes as sometimes
the applications themselves, as bad patients, are not reliable on
answering about their status :). Having an option to hard-kill
instances have been proven very useful through the years, with this or
any long lived processes. It's not an issue specific to Resin or any
other server.

My only issue was the watchdog process reporting instances to be up
when they were not, as this woud mean it would not startup the new
instance. So thanks for creating the bug reports, I'll keep an eyem on
them to upgrade again.
