Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5816) [PATCH] Debian packaging: also recommend chrony and ptpd in addition to ntp
Date Mon, 29 Jul 2013 22:59:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5816?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13723099#comment-13723099
] 

Blair Zajac commented on CASSANDRA-5816:
----------------------------------------

We're using ansible [1] to do our installs into EC2 so we have a 'base' playbook that does
a minimal install of required packages, which includes chrony, and then a 'cassandra' playbook
deploys Cassandra on top of the base install, so the package install order is fixed.

So there are multiple ways to skin the cat; I just prefer to update Cassandra's packaging.

Are you removing your -1 then and giving the go-ahead to add "ntp | time-daemon"?

> 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,
