Hello all,

i have the following status in ntpq command:

ntpq> pee
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
==============================================================================
*timeserver  .GPS.            1 u    6   16  377    0.299    0.019   0.067
+server1       xx.xx.xx.xx    2 u   15   16  376    0.232    0.062   0.036
+server2       xx.xx.xx.xx    2 u   14   16  377    0.261    0.014   0.194

ntpq> ass

===========================================================

  2 50222  f41d   yes   yes   ok  candidate              1
  3 50223  f41d   yes   yes   ok  candidate              1
  4 50224  f31d   yes   yes   ok    outlyer              1
ntpq>

what does the popcorn status (d in column status) mean ?
why am i not able to see last_event changing like when ntp is started?
Why about cnt column - it has been changing when ntp started, but now it stays at cnt=1.

status when ntp restarted:
ind assid status  conf reach auth condition  last_event cnt
===========================================================
  1   839  963a   yes   yes  none  sys.peer    sys_peer  3
  2   840  f324   yes   yes   ok    outlyer   reachable  2
  3   841  f424   yes   yes   ok  candidate   reachable  2
  4   842  f424   yes   yes   ok  candidate   reachable  2


Thanks for the explanation.
Kind regards,
ardi
