Updating linux time
You can set the time during system boot actually, and from the Debian Documentation they even specify it for use on hardware that doesn't keep track of time properly.
Accurate timekeeping has become a critical component of modern software deployments.
I am making an application in Python which collects data from a serial port and plots a graph of the collected data against arrival time. I want the plot to be updated when data is received.
I searched on how to do this and found two methods: I do not prefer the first one as the program runs and collects data for a long time (a day for example), and redrawing the plot will be pretty slow.
I have an old computer and BIOS counts the time slower than real ;) So, how can I set my OS to update the time automatically using the internet?
If it updated the time only during booting, it would be enough.
Check the box next to the firmware update under Update Details.
Prerequisites: -Before beginning this guide, I would recommend that your i Drac7 be at the latest firmware.There are a number of ways of animating data in matplotlib, depending on the version you have. Also, check out the more modern animation examples in the matplotlib documentation.Finally, the animation API defines a function Func Animation which animates a function in time.Until recently, most network time synchronization was handled by the or ntpd. If you have more sophisticated timekeeping needs than what we’ve covered here, you might reference the offical NTP documentation, and also take a look at the NTP Pool Project, a global group of volunteers providing much of the world's NTP infrastructure.This server connects to a pool of other NTP servers that provide it with constant and accurate time updates.
