ADJTIME(3)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                ADJTIME(3)

NAME
       adjtime - correct the time to synchronize the system clock

SYNOPSIS
       int adjtime(const struct timeval *delta, struct timeval *olddelta);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       adjtime(): _BSD_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  adjtime() function gradually adjusts the system clock (as returned
       by gettimeofday(2)).  The amount of time by which the clock  is  to  be
       adjusted  is  specified  in  the  structure  pointed to by delta.  This
       structure has the following form:

           struct timeval {
               time_t      tv_sec;     /* seconds */
               suseconds_t tv_usec;    /* microseconds */
           };

       If the adjustment in delta  is  positive,  then  the  system  clock  is
       speeded  up by some small percentage (i.e., by adding a small amount of
       time to the clock value in each second) until the adjustment  has  been
       completed.   If  the adjustment in delta is negative, then the clock is
       slowed down in a similar fashion.

       If a clock adjustment from an earlier  adjtime()  call  is  already  in
       progress  at  the time of a later adjtime() call, and delta is not NULL
       for the later call, then the earlier adjustment  is  stopped,  but  any
       already completed part of that adjustment is not undone.

       If  olddelta  is not NULL, then the buffer that it points to is used to
       return the amount of time remaining from any previous  adjustment  that
       has not yet been completed.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, adjtime() returns 0.  On failure, -1 is returned, and errno
       is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       EINVAL The adjustment in delta is outside the permitted range.

       EPERM  The caller does not have  sufficient  privilege  to  adjust  the
              time.  Under Linux the CAP_SYS_TIME capability is required.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD, System V.

NOTES
       The adjustment that adjtime() makes to the clock is carried out in such
       a manner that the clock is always monotonically increasing.  Using adj-
       time()  to adjust the time prevents the problems that can be caused for
       certain applications (e.g., make(1)) by  abrupt  positive  or  negative
       jumps in the system time.

       adjtime()  is intended to be used to make small adjustments to the sys-
       tem time.  Most systems impose a limit on the adjustment  that  can  be
       specified  in  delta.   In the glibc implementation, delta must be less
       than or equal to (INT_MAX / 1000000 - 2) and greater than or  equal  to
       (INT_MIN  / 1000000 + 2) (respectively 2145 and -2145 seconds on i386).

BUGS
       A longstanding bug meant that if delta was specified as NULL, no  valid
       information about the outstanding clock adjustment was returned in old-
       delta.  (In this circumstance, adjtime() should return the  outstanding
       clock  adjustment,  without changing it.)  This bug is fixed on systems
       with glibc 2.8 or later and Linux kernel 2.6.26 or later.
