It happens graduately (e.g. 4 min per days)

or 'all of sudden' at a certain time in a week?

And the same on these 3 PCs, right?

But since they are linux, you can use some tools such as ssh to remotely log in and have a look.

You can even automate the job to monitor.

maybe something like 'ssh <server> date"

then schedule it to run every 1 or 2 hours as a cron job...

Of course, before you do all these hard labor, you should check the /var/log/message to see if any odd stuff happened...

Hi all,

Thank you your helping first!

Now I post for details for this case.


P4 520 (28GHz,800FSB,1MB Cache,socket 775)
1GB DDR 400 (Samsung)
ECS 915-m5 (i915GV)
120GB P-ATA

Rehat 8.0,Kernel is orignal 2.4.18
Samba
Webmin 1.20

I find out the software time is slower 3 mins every day.
But Hardware Time is correct. (All info find out in webmin)
Every day the server is shut down at 18:00 and startup at 8:30 in morning.
I changed a new otherboard for testing. The case is same. The old motherboard run windows xp home and test the time. No problem found.
Is it Redhat 8.0 problem or something I miss?

If the hardware clock is set correctly, but the system time is not check out the "hwclock" command.

You'll probably want to try something like "hwclock --hctosys"
