Chrony: NTP Time Synchronization

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux

This check uses the output of chronyc tracking in order to check the time synchronization when using chrony. The check is very similar to ntp, which monitors the ntpd, but it does not support jitter.

You can set levels for the maximum stratum and for the time offset in milliseconds. The configuration is compatible with ntp.

When chrony is not found running, the check goes to CRIT.


One service is created if chrony is running.
