NAME

       systemd-timedated.service, systemd-timedated - Time and date bus mechanism

SYNOPSIS

       systemd-timedated.service

       /lib/systemd/systemd-timedated

DESCRIPTION

       systemd-timedated is a system service that may be used as a mechanism to change the system
       clock and timezone, as well as to enable/disable NTP time synchronization.
       systemd-timedated is automatically activated on request and terminates itself when it is
       unused.

       The tool timedatectl(1) is a command line client to this service.

       See the developer documentation[1] for information about the APIs systemd-timedated
       provides.

ENVIRONMENT

       $SYSTEMD_TIMEDATED_NTP_SERVICES
           Colon-separated list of unit names of NTP client services. If not set, then systemd-
           timesyncd.service(8) is used. See the entries of NTP related commands of
           timedatectl(1) for details about this.

           Example:

               SYSTEMD_TIMEDATED_NTP_SERVICES=ntpd.service:chronyd.service:systemd-timesyncd.service
