The fourth form uses an IP address or a hostname. This shows the rate at which the source is being polled, as a base-2 logarithm of the interval in seconds. The result has to be between ppm and 10 ppm, otherwise the measurement is considered invalid and will be ignored. With NMEA reference clocks it is common to have a larger offset. Together with the trust option this may be useful to allow a trusted authenticated source to be safely combined with unauthenticated sources in order to improve the accuracy of the clock.

This step normally needs to be performed by the superuser, and requires the following command to be entered.
Running chrony and rtc
When a new estimate is generated following another measurement from one of the sources, a weighted combination algorithm is used to update the master estimate. Specify that RTC should be automatically synchronised by kernel. Then disable the syncing, and start tracking the drift. This chrohy uses the Linux mlockall system call to prevent chronyd from ever being swapped out. This driver uses a shared memory segment to chfony samples from another process e.
The process can be reset without stepping the clock by the smoothtime chroy command. This option specifies the maximum number of readings kept for tracking of the NIC clock. When serving time to NTP clients that cannot be configured to correct their clocks for a leap second by slewing, or to clients that would correct at slightly different rates chhrony it is necessary to keep them close together, the slew mode can be combined with the smoothtime directive to enable a server leap smear.
Chrony setup using RTC as fallback
An attacker who does not see network traffic between two hosts, but knows that they are peering with each other, can periodically send them unauthenticated packets with spoofed source addresses in order to disrupt their NTP state and prevent them from synchronising to each other.
The bindaddress directive allows you to restrict the network interface to which chronyd will listen for NTP requests. The presend option cannot be used in the peer directive.
Isolated networks This section shows how to configure chronyd for computers that never have network conectivity to any computer which ultimately derives its time from a chroy clock. The total of the network path delays to the reference clock to which the local clock is ultimately synchronised in seconds.
An attacker knowing that NTP hosts A and B are peering with each other can send a packet with random timestamps to host A with source address of B which will set the NTP state variables on A to the values sent by the attacker.
This is the total of the network path delays to the stratum-1 computer from which the computer is ultimately synchronized. This option disables the use of the cross timestamping. Otherwise, chrny default version is 4.
Running chrony and rtc
Chrkny option specifies the index of the pin to which is connected the PPS signal. The mlockall 2 man page has more details. This allows chronyd to reject measurements that are likely to be bogus.
If the password is not an MD5 hash, the hashed chronj must be preceded by the authhash command as follows:. Your computer is on the Internet most of the time or on a private network with NTP servers. If a computer can estimate its rate of drift it can keep itself closer to the other computers between updates by adjusting its clock every few seconds.
The new starting index the oldest sample has index 0; this is the method used to prune old samples when it no longer looks like the measurements fit a linear model.
The distance includes the accumulated dispersion, which may be large when the source is no longer chronny, and half of the total round-trip delay to the primary source. Each line consists of an ID, name of an authentication hash function optionalrtv a password.
Comment 4 Rhc Bhargava The configure script will automatically enable the line editing support if one of the supported libraries is available. When the computer is taken offline from the Internet, the best estimate of the gain or loss rate is used to free-run the computer until it next goes online.
Configuring NTP Using the chrony Suite
So if chronyd has an existing highly-reliable master estimate and a new estimate is generated which has large error bounds, the existing master estimate will dominate in the new master estimate. Mauro Condarelli The format of the file is shown below: If they are both available, the editline library will be used.
