SYNOPSIS         top



DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-time-wait-sync is a system service that delays the start
       of units that are ordered after (see
       systemd.special(7) for details) until the system time has been
       synchronized with an accurate remote reference time source by

       systemd-timesyncd.service notifies systemd-time-wait-sync about
       successful synchronization.  systemd-time-wait-sync also tries to
       detect when the kernel marks the system clock as synchronized,
       but this detection is not reliable and is intended only as a
       fallback for compatibility with alternative NTP services that can
       be used to synchronize time (e.g., ntpd, chronyd).

FILES         top

           The presence of this file indicates to this service that the
           system clock has been synchronized.
