SuSE 8.2 system time unstable
Date: Thu, 24 Jul 2003 12:34:06 +0100
I have the above (updated to the latest kernel patch via YOU, if it is
relevant) running on an Asus P5A-B motherboard with an AMD KT-550. The
CMOS clock keeps moderately poor time, a few seconds a day. However,
the system clock is about 3-5 percent out (half to one hour a day!).
More importantly it shows enormous short term jitter, adjtimex -c giving
figures from 10400 to 10700 in an average run. Is it possible there is
some major software incompatibility with my system or is this a hardware
problem? If so, would I be right in thinking it is more a CPU problem
than a clock problem, or does the CMOS clock work from a different
crystal to the CPU bus?

... While I'm sure the CMOS clock doesn't have anything to do, I wrote a cron job to make sure: it compares the system clock to the cmos clock every five minutes, and logs the possible error to syslog. ... I should provoke a network error by powering down the adsl router and find out if either the system clock or cmos clock drifts. ... And, for those that are curious, these are the drift values, logged every ...
