Is there a user-mode command that will tell how inaccurate my system clock is according to NTP servers?
ntpdate command, but the man page doesn't say what the numbers mean. What are
delay? Is it relative to system time? What are the units?
$ ntpdate -q 3.us.pool.ntp.org server 126.96.36.199, stratum 2, offset 2678403.508474, delay 0.04489 server 188.8.131.52, stratum 2, offset 2678403.506414, delay 0.04755 server 184.108.40.206, stratum 2, offset 2678403.504741, delay 0.02769 23 Jan 16:41:17 ntpdate: step time server 220.127.116.11 offset 2678403.504741 sec
Then there's the
ntpd command, which claims to replace
ntpdate. Is there any way to run it as non-root and print out how accurate my system clock is?
