NAME

       systemd-timesyncd.service, systemd-timesyncd - Network Time
       Synchronization

SYNOPSIS

       systemd-timesyncd.service

       /lib/systemd/systemd-timesyncd

DESCRIPTION

       systemd-timesyncd is a system service that may be used to synchronize
       the local system clock with a remote Network Time Protocol server. It
       also saves the local time to disk every time the clock has been
       synchronized and uses this to possibly advance the system realtime
       clock on subsequent reboots to ensure it monotonically advances even if
       the system lacks a battery-buffered RTC chip.

       The NTP servers contacted are determined from the global settings in
       timesyncd.conf(5), the per-link static settings in .network files, and
       the per-link dynamic settings received over DHCP. See
       systemd.network(5) for more details.

       timedatectl(1)'s set-ntp command may be used to enable and start, or
       disable and stop this service.
