Summary: Utility to display or set the kernel time variables
This program gives you raw access to the kernel time variables. For a
machine connected to the Internet, or equipped with a precision oscillator
or radio clock, the best way to keep the system clock correct is with
ntpd. However, for a standalone or intermittently connected machine,
you may use adjtimex instead to at least correct for systematic drift.
adjtimex can optionally adjust the system clock using the CMOS clock as
a reference, and can log times for long-term estimation of drift rates.
