I've been running ntp 4.2.4p4 on my desktop. I recently upgraded to
and noticed that at high ntp request rates (5000 requests per second) it
to drop a lot of requests. With ntp 4.2.4p4 (as packaged by kubuntu
it would drop fewer than 0.02% of incoming requests. That is up from a
drop rate for 4.0.4p0 on the same hardware. Now with 4.2.4p7 it's
2.65% of ntp requests.
Has anybody else noticed the drop off in request throughput? If so, is
any perception of a "problem"?
Thanks in advance.
