Just for comparison:
Intel Atom PC running FreeBSD 8.2 (Pixie):
o127.127.20.1 .PPS. offset/jitter -0.001 0.002
Two Raspberry Pis running Linux 3.2.27+
o127.127.22.0 .PPS. offset/jitter 0.002 0.002
o127.127.22.0 .PPS. offset/jitter 0.001 0.002
Raspberry Pi running Linux 3.36.11
o127.127.22.0 .PPS. offset/jitter 0.000 0.002
65 microseconds offset seems a little high to me, but the PCs I've just
quoted are all (mostly) /only/ serving NTP. I have been doing a little
installation work on Raspberry Pi #3 today, and it now has a steady CPU
and network I/O load. Its PPS was only configured yesterday.
Performance graphs are here:
I hope that helps your comparisons.
