The overarching goal of Container Linux is to secure the Internet's backend infrastructure.We believe that automatically updating the operating system is one of the best tools to achieve this goal.In classic ntpd based service uses the pool of [0-3].Of the pool number 2.as well as ntp.also support ipv6 if needed.Accurate timekeeping has become a critical component of modern software deployments.We realize that each Container Linux cluster has a unique tolerance for risk and the operational needs of your applications are complex.In order to meet everyone's needs, there are three update strategies that we have developed based on feedback during our alpha period.It's important to note that updates are always downloaded to the passive partition when they become available.
NTP is a TCP/IP protocol for synchronising time over a network.
It does not have the ability to store the time standard (localtime or UTC), nor whether DST is used. the software clock) keeps track of: time, time zone, and DST if applicable.
It is calculated by the Linux kernel as the number of seconds since midnight January 1st 1970, UTC.
Standard behavior of most operating systems is: The hardware clock (a.k.a.
the Real Time Clock (RTC) or CMOS clock) stores the values of: Year, Month, Day, Hour, Minute, and Seconds.
If you want to be sure that the time on your Linux Mint PC is accurate, you might want to set it to update automatically from special time servers on the Internet.
