    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...

    /var/run/ntpd.leap-seconds.list may be truncated

    I've noticed this message in the daily reports: It comes from a service ntpd onefetch. The file does not seem truncated, and is not yet expired (it says "File expires on: 28 June 2022"). I already ran freebsd-update fetch (everything is up to date). Is there anything to do, or to worry about?

    Configuration of local NTPD on FreeBSD 13.0

    Hi, NTPD seems to be simple service, but I found it challenging it doesn't do what I need. Currently local date synchronization works well, however I need to use it as local network service no matter if ntp client has access to Internet or no. No NAT is better. I have 2 network interfaces: em0...

    Solved How to verify ntpd synchronization?

    I'm trying to use ntpd to set the correct time on a machine. I have setup the service by adding these two lines in /etc/rc.conf: ntpd_enable="YES" ntpd_sync_on_start="YES" Then i ran service ntpd start to start the service. The thing I can't figure out is how to see that the time has been...

    Time Is UTC, but Time Zone Is Local

    After my second install of FreeBSD last week, I am confused as to the best way to go about fixing my system's defective clock. I thought I set up FreeBSD correctly, yet whenever the computer boots up it shows UTC as the time, but shows my time zone as "CST" (UTC-6). The time is also always more...

    Solved Really bad clock skew after upgrade

    Hi all, I recently upgraded my main server to 13.0-RELEASE-p4, and since then I have noticed the clock can't keep sync. It has drifted as much as 12 hours out of sync, despite ntpd running. After investigating further, it seems that the clock will drift about 3.5 seconds every minute. I have...
