This check behaves simarly to the already existing ntp check. It uses the output of {timedatectl timesync-status} as sent by the agent. It lists the information of the synchronised time server including the server address, stratum, offset and jitter. On a running instance the time is synchronised either using ntp or timesyncd. The agent therefore determines the correct service and the respective check to use.
