.SH CHRONY
chrony sets your clock from the Net and adjusts the system time for drift 
when you are not connected.
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B chronyd
.I "[options]"
.br
.B chronyc
.I "[options] [files] ..."
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.B chrony
is a software package for maintaining the accuracy of computer
system clocks.  It consists of a pair of programs:

.B chronyd
 This is a daemon which runs in background on the
system.  It obtains measurements (e.g. via the network) of the
system's offset relative to other systems, and adjusts the system
time accordingly.  For isolated systems, the user can periodically
enter the correct time by hand (using 
.B chronyc
).  In either case,
.B chronyd
determines the rate at which the computer gains or loses
time, and compensates for this.

.B chronyc
 This is a command-line driven control and monitoring
program.  An administrator can use this to fine-tune various
parameters within the daemon, add or delete servers etc whilst the
daemon is running.
