Re: [chrony-users] Chrony not taking SOCKET data from Application

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hi Miroslav,

With Chrony configured using GPS and PPS refclocks I observed from "chronyc tracking" output (filtering on "Ref time") that in each minute there is a second missing. Any idea on what could be the cause of this? Or is this chronyc issue.
Please provide your valuable feedback.

Attached the log file for reference.

Thanks & Regards

The main problem is not the cable, but the system himself : bus latency,
irq latency etc...
You're right : very special hardware is needed to reach less than 100ns
measurement induced error/system clock tracking.
