Is bmc-watchdog Causing Unexpected Restart

Hi All,

I am new in this forum,

My Oracle Linux Unbreakable 6.5 Machine restarted unexpectedly and randomly so friend check logs and ask me to stop "bmc-watchdog" as far my googling/research i found that "bmc-watchdog" is just a life saver for hung machine and for any reasons if server stuck it will automatically restarts.

Is it true ?
