ntpdate

ntpdate is a simple and small replacement for the homonymous and obsolete tool from the NTP Project's (www.ntp.org) reference implementation. ntpdate sets the local date and time by polling the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server(s) given as the server argument to determine the correct time. It must be run as root on the local host. It is not meant for real time synchronization.

    Release Notes: The offset tolerance was changed to +- 125 ms, but the number of retries was reduced to avoid possible flooding of the time servers. The cron job now handles non-Red Hat/Fedora Core systems better, and queries current time servers.
