    My rant about my lack of NTPD knowledge

    LOL, I have been worrying about a non-problem for some years but did not bother me enough to take a deeper look, so today it nagged me to the point of looking into the docu. When I put my machine to sleep, all VMs suspend time until it's awake again. The hardware clock of the host ticks while...

    Solved Running an NTP time server in a jail?

    FreeBSD - clock drift

    Hi, we use FreeBSD 12.0 on an "old" DELL 2950 Server (8-Core, 24GB Memory) as our main ZABBIX Monitoring System. From time to time, last happened yesterday, the system clock goes of by an significant amount of time and ZABBIX starts to alert because it thinks that it didn't receive values from...

    ntp server and client does not sync

    I have a Freebsd 9.2 system and a cisco router. I enable and config my system as a ntp server. The cisco is ntp client and by ntp broadcast I want to sync both system's date and time. My problem is cisco is one houre behind! Do you have any idea for this problem?
