Hi, I ran into a use case where the activation phase of a service takes significantly longer than the desired watchdog period (Activating: 10-20secs, Watchdog: 1-5secs).
I found out that the watchdog features starts not before the service is in state START_POST. This means for my use case that the system is blind for 10-20secs (whatever I set as startup timeout here). Is there any way to activate the watchdog feature already in phase ACTIVATING? I guess there should be a second watchdog configuration parameter to allow services to use different values for the states ACTIVATING and RUNING. Otherwise, people who are not interested in having a watchdog observation during startup will run into troubles ... Any opinions on that?
