|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check uses the output of timedatectl timesync-status as sent by the
agent. It lists the information of the synchronised time server including
the server address, stratum, offset and jitter. The check gets critical
if the time offset exceeds a default level, if the stratum is too high or
other error conditions. It gets UNKNOWN if the time has not yet been
synchronised. The check logic is shared with the ntp check. On a running
instance the time is synchronised either using ntp or timesyncd. The agent
therefore determines the correct service to use and subsequent check.
Note: this check is only available for versions higher than Ubuntu 18.04
One service is created if the timedatectl timesync-status command is available.
