SNTS (Simple Network Time Sync) is a simple, fast, and low-overhead time syncronization system for LANs. It is designed as a simple replacement for timed with better time control and better portability (for systems without a standard adjtime() call, such as Linux). It uses broadcasts to negotiate servers and set time, and allows multiple groupings of servers on a network for independent time management for groups or labs. SNTS also supports multiple servers in a single group.
