I have in messages.log a lot of messages from the ntpd service. The
Aug 9 09:51:03 ntp1 ntpd: kernel time sync disabled 2307
Aug 9 09:51:57 ntp1 ntpd: pps sync disabled
Aug 9 09:52:09 ntp1 ntpd: kernel time sync enabled 2107
This is a good situation. The server is synced with the GPS signal and
report stratum 1.
>From time to time (I could not determine if there are any factors that
could influence this behavior) I have:
Aug 9 07:13:10 ntp1 ntpd: pps sync disabled
Aug 9 07:20:34 ntp1 ntpd: pps sync disabled
Aug 9 07:28:50 ntp1 ntpd: pps sync disabled
and the server is not synced with the GPS signal.
To correct this last situation I have to restart the ntpd process.
Are the any technical known explanations of this behavior ?
Systems are: FreeBSD 5.4 + Garmin 18LVC
