NAME

       chrony.conf - chronyd configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/chrony/chrony.conf

DESCRIPTION

       chrony is a pair of programs for maintaining the accuracy of computer clocks. chronyd is a
       background daemon program that can be started at boot time.

       Assuming that you have found some servers, you need to set up a configuration file to  run
       chrony.   The  (compiled-in)  default  location  for this file is /etc/chrony/chrony.conf.
       Assuming that  your  NTP  servers  are  called  `foo.example.net',  `bar.example.net'  and
       `baz.example.net', your chrony.conf file could contain as a minimum

            server foo.example.net
            server bar.example.net
            server baz.example.net

       However,  you  will  probably  want  to  include some of the other directives described in
       detail in the documentation supplied with the distribution (chrony.txt  and  chrony.texi).
       The following directives may be particularly useful : `driftfile',  `makestep', `rtcsync'.
       Also, the `iburst' server option is useful to speed up the initial  synchronization.   The
       smallest useful configuration file would look something like

            server foo.example.net iburst
            server bar.example.net iburst
            server baz.example.net iburst
            driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift
            makestep 10 3
            rtcsync

       When  using  a pool of NTP servers (one name is used for multiple servers which may change
       over time), it's better to specify them with the  `pool'  directive  instead  of  multiple
       `server' directives.  The configuration file could in this case look like

            pool pool.ntp.org iburst
            driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift
            makestep 10 3
            rtcsync
