#8557 closed defect (fixed)

DDNS update should use monotonic clock

Reported by: quiet.dragon@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


The script uses $(date +%s) to monitor the time elapsed between DNS record updates.

This approach is fragile because CLOCK_REALTIME can be slewed by time adjustments (eg NTP).

A more robust approach is to use a monotonic clock. Since the script only requires a coarse precision, /proc/uptime is a good choice.
