Description

De flag -g heeft geen zin als ntpd meteen gestart wordt bij boot: de routering werkt nog niet en de timeservers kunnen niet gevonden worden.
Suggestie: vertraagd op laten starten.

Ik kan ntpd eventueel ook, net als pen, opnieuw laten starten via het
sortproxies script ?

Dat lijkt me niet zo'n goed idee, want dan start ntpd ook elke 30 minuten opnieuw. Er moet wel een elegantere methode zijn te bedenken.

-g is only in there to make sure it does not bails out in panic. What does it got to do with the startup and routing?

The deamon itself should handle network delay issues, not the user.

Also note, in order for routing to work properly the time need to be set correctly. So the sooner the time deamon get some working time, the better.

We could also define the direct neighbors to be the authoritative on startup, that would make it way more reliable.

ntpdate_hosts should be set to direct neighbors to make it far more efficient on boot. Needing a genesis config generator change.

No changes needed into ntpd as it will pickup the time as soon as it finds the reachable time servers.

Sounds tempting to do so, altough a hardcore sync of time is by many running processes not appriciated and could cause process issues. Better to leave it as is and have a nagios check running on the time later on and correct it by hand or forcefull if known issue (dead bios battery for example).
