Chrony is a pair of programs for maintaining the accuracy of computer

The reference time can be derived from either Network Time Protocol
(NTP) servers (preferred), or wristwatch-and-keyboard (via chronyc).
The main source of information about the Network Time Protocol is

It is designed so that it can work on computers which only have
intermittent access to reference sources, for example computers which
use a dial-up account to access the Internet. Of course, it will work
on computers with permanent connections too.

Chronyd can also operate as an RFC1305-compatible NTP server and peer.

   Log message:
   Update to 1.23 and fix coredump on NetBSD 4.0 and later.

   The changes in version 1.23 are

       * Support for MIPS, x86_64, sparc, alpha, arm, FreeBSD
       * Fix serious sign-extension error in handling IP addresses
       * RTC support can be excluded at compile time
       * Make sources gcc-4 compatible
       * Fix various compiler warnings
       * Handle fluctuations in peer distance better.
       * Fixed handling of stratum zero.
       * Fix various problems for 64-bit systems
       * Flush chronyc output streams after each command, to allow it to be
       driven through pipes
       * Manpage improvements

   The changes in version 1.21 are

       * Don't include Linux kernel header files any longer : allows chrony to
         compile on recent distros.
       * Stop trying to use RTC if continuous streams of error messages would
         occur (Linux with HPET).
