Symantec Web Gateway or Symantec Traffic Shaper became unresponsive at the command line interface. You seek to check the CPU temperature and other sensor data to determine if a hardware failure occurred.


In the event of a freeze, restart the SWG or STS appliance immediately to return it to service. To troubleshoot the freeze behavior, run the Dell Express hardware diagnostics to determine if a hardware error occurred. The Dell Express hardware diagnostics will also display the log entries within BIOS, including log entries from a hard reset.

BIOS log entries that indicate a hard reset and cite watchdog sensor 2 were initiated by the Linux based operating system. For these, contact Symantec Technical Support for further assistance. For all others, contact Dell for hardware troubleshooting.
