Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9877
Incorrect time reported if system time is changed.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
When updating the system time using rdate the connected time is changed by
the same as the system time.
1) Connected time is 00:03
2) "rdate -s servername" adds 1:06 to the system time
3) connected time instantly changes to 01:09.
Bug exists in version that came with RH 6.1 stock (1.0.0 I'm guessing) and
in version 1.0.1
rp3 uses the difference between the current system time and the timestamp on
the lock file created in /var/run to compute the amount of time the interface
has been up.
If the interface is brought up before rp3 is started, there is no other
reference point rp3 can use to track the uptime for the interface, so changing
rp3 to use an internal counter when an interface is brought up wouldn't help.
