New NTP server

by on Sep.20, 2007, under Linux, System Administration

Been meaning to do this for a while, but I’ve finally set up a new public NTP timeserver.

It’s a stratum-3 server, syncing to several decent stratum-2 servers, and answers to the name of time.preshweb.co.uk.

It’s entered the UK pool.ntp.org DNS pool, and I’m seeing quite a few requests already – currently my stats show 4.2 requests per second.

NTP is a damn useful tool to keep system clocks in sync and I’ve been using it for ages on all my boxen; it’s nice to be able to help out by sharing the load a little.

Read more info about NTP or about the pool.ntp.org project. If you have a server somewhere and are willing to help out, the project needs more pool servers to share the load – read more about joining.
