Subject: [ntp:questions] New NTP version for Windows with GUI setup
I'd like to announce that there is a new NTP version for Windows with GUI
setup available at the Meinberg download page:
In this version a stability problem of earlier versions has been fixed.
Additionally this version contains some new features:
- The Windows system clock is slewed quickly (in a 2 second period)
to account for the leap second.
- Detection of the leap second announcement, and insertion of the
leap second are reported in the event log.
- If the new parameter -M is given on the command line then the NTP
service sets the Windows multimedia timer to highest resolution
as long as the service is active. This prevents the Windows system
time to step back and forth when other applications modify the
multimedia timer, as discussed recently in this newsgroup.
- An event log message is generated if the service is stopped.
- The statistics file is now by default correctly named "sysstats"
instead of "systats".
The reason the new version having been made available so late are some
stability problems which had been observed with earlier versions under
As of writing this posting, the modified code has not been submitted to the
bitkeeper repository, we'll do that as soon as possible.
Merry christmas and best regards,
