[CentOS] Make server reboot by itself instead of dropping to kernel debugger

I am not sure though, if I need to start
the watchdog daemon at all -
because I altready have these lines in my dmesg:

iTCO_vendor_support: vendor-support=0
iTCO_wdt: Intel TCO WatchDog Timer Driver v1.07rh
iTCO_wdt: Found a Lynx Point TCO device (Version=2, TCOBASE=0x1860)
iTCO_wdt: initialized. heartbeat=30 sec (nowayout=0)

Does it mean there is some "hardware watchdog"
active at my CentOS 6.4 / 64 bit (Haswell CPU) server already?

Thank you for any hints
