Best Practices for maintaining a time standard? (was: Does anyone know what time it is?)

Skip this message if you’re confident in your clock settings…

I’m looking for the right place to seek wisdom about how to manage clocks in a k8s environment? some of the questions I have are:

  • Is anyone running their own time standard? (feel free to ask wtf I’m talking about)
  • Is there a chrony helm chart with sensible defaults for NTP pools, failover, dispersion, jitter, etc.?
  • Are there any studies on how to track clock drift across nodes?
  • Across regions?
