This question already has an answer here:
[I have two not-really-related questions about
so I'm asking them separately. The other one is
"how to act as NTP server?".]
I just upgraded to High Sierra (yeah, I'm a bit behind the
times), and I just discovered this new system time daemon,
timed, which is evidently new with 10.13.
I also discovered that it may not be working properly.
I noticed (by manually querying
time.apple.com and other NTP
servers) that my machine was about a minute off, despite having
the "Set date and time automatically" box checked in Date & Time
I think there used to be a "Sync now" button in that dialog, but it's not there now. So I tried unchecking and re-checking the "Set date and time automatically" box, and the machine immediately synched itself (the ~1 minute error went away). I'll have to wait a few days to see whether time drifts again, or stays locked.
Anybody know of any issues with
timed, or ways to improve its
(Sorry I don't have more information to report; I know this isn't much to go on.)
