I can note on several Linux servers (Fedora Core) 5 ntpd processes .

USER       PID %CPU %MEM   VSZ  RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND

root      1981  0.0  0.2  2556 2552 ?        SL   Dec16   0:00 /usr/
sbin/ntpd -qg
root      4186  0.0  0.2  2900 2896 ?        SL   Dec17   0:00 /usr/
sbin/ntpd -qg
root     26908  0.0  0.2  3060 3052 ?        SL   Dec18   0:00 /usr/
sbin/ntpd -qg
root     23064  0.0  0.3  3616 3608 ?        SL   Dec19   0:00 /usr/
sbin/ntpd -qg
root     22420  0.0  0.4  4252 4248 ?        SL   Dec20   0:00 /usr/
sbin/ntpd -qg


I scheduled process in crontab on all machines:
00 05 * * * /usr/sbin/ntpd -qg

I can't understand where it was problem because if now I run ntpd -qg
I works fine.
But there is timeout fot ntpd ? I have no logs for this date !

What do you think ?
