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.
