I don't know what you mean by "step rate".  There is no "rate",
it just changes the clock to the new value.

You can adjust point where it switches from slew to step.
(Some data bases really really don't want time to go backwards.)

You can't change the slew rate.  It is tangled up with
stability considerations.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
