RE: [chrony-users] Checking if chrony is synchronized

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hello Miroslav,

Thank you for quick response.
None of the sources are specified with trust option. Do you have any idea why I get this status?
If i understand you correctly, I must use "chronyc tracking" and field Reference ID for status of local clock synchronization. 

Thank you for your help.

That's an interesting example. Is the third source specified with the trust option?

It depends on what exactly you mean by being synchronized with a source. The characters in the source output indicate the selection status, whether the source is currently used for synchronization of the local clock. If it's not, it doesn't mean the local clock is no longer synchronized. For synchronization status of the local clock there is the tracking command.
