Yes, it's Linux.
But I did not reboot the server, only the service.
Anyway, I thought the drift was showing how much the BIOS clock was faster or slower than the reference clock.

What do you mean when you say that the base frequency is recalculated?

I must be very slow here, I've been asking about the drift but it seems I still haven't grasped the meaning of it...
