Drift file not updating Free site of webcam chat for couple exchange
How do I find out if NTP daemon did indeed move time at all? I do see NTP daemon restart in /var/log/messages, but I don't know if time adjustment should be there as well.
to clarify: I need to understand it from the logs, after the event. Running commands to see the current status doesn't help.

Example: Content of the file: 5 Machine was powered down 1 day (86400 s) 5 ppm of 86400 is 0.432 = The local clock is 0.432 s "in the future" The points are: - ntpd can now apply a first approximate correction to the local time (-0.432 s) immediately after starting - ntpd knows immediately, how wrong the local clock is (in this example: 5 ppm) (I am not allowed to comment on the comment of Sirex so I added a new comment) you should have a value in the drift file.
Its location will be in your /etc/e.g: "driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift" this file is used to log how far your clock is from what it should be, and slowly ntp should lower this value as time progresses.
For India it would be: Your system is not getting NTP responses back from the server you have listed, that's what the "INIT" means under the "refid" column: it is still in the INITialization state—sending out packets to get an INITial reading of the time.
But you should usually specify the country you want the servers to be from by using the country code in the hostnames.TEMP: Permission denied Checking /etc/apparmor.d/ntpd lists the file /var/lib/ntp/drift/ntp.drift. TEMP but not the file /var/lib/ntp/drift/driftfile. The units for the drift file are "PPM", or "parts per million".NTP has finer grained control than that, so we look at errors of margin using 0.0001% (0.000001, or 1 PPM).
In permissive mode, the drift file is properly created and updated.
