The average would be best, but usually it doesn't matter much.

Are there any consequences if I use too small or too large a value?  eg.

If the SHM 0 refclock is used only for locking a PPS refclock, then it
just needs to be accurate enough to reliably lock the PPS.

If it will be used as the primary time source, a too small or too
large value will have a negative impact on the average error of the

I'm using SHM 0 as the primary time source, so I will use the average as suggested.

I haven't been able to get PPS going on my system (using either SHM 1 or SOCK).  I will revisit it that at some point in the future.

Thanks, Brendan.
