Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5816) [PATCH] Debian packaging: also recommend chrony and ptpd in addition to ntp
Date Mon, 29 Jul 2013 17:09:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5816?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13722644#comment-13722644
] 

paul cannon commented on CASSANDRA-5816:
----------------------------------------

-1. If anything, we should change the Recommends: line to "{{ntp | time-daemon}}". The chrony
package {{Provides: time-daemon}}, so that should meet the needs for users that want Chrony.
It would be silly to try and keep a list of all packaged time sync systems in Cassandra's
dependencies.

But also, this is only a Recommends:. People administering apt-based systems should be able
to disregard Recommends as they like. If they can't, that is a configuration problem or a
pebkac problem or a bug in APT.

> I'm switching my Ubuntu servers running Cassandra from ntp to chrony for the reasons
cited here when Fedora made the switch to have chrony be the default NTP client:
> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ChronyDefaultNTP
> Currently, the debian packaging recommends only ntp so if chrony is installed it'll want
to remove it and install ntp.  I also added ptpd, the Precision Time Protocol daemon, which
is another time syncing server for completeness.
> Please apply this to the 1.2 branch so the next 1.2.x release can deploy with chrony.
> Below is the patch since it's a one-liner.
> Thanks,
> Blair
