Slow Goat Riot is playing at 9 tonight at JA Michaels.
With that out of the way, can someone tell me why my NTP daemon keeps dying? Right now, I've got my router/web server (Trogdor) running an NTP daemon that gets updates from clock.xmission.com. To save hits on a stratum 1 server, my internal machines then update from Trogdor. The problem is, it runs for a day or so (at least some time over an hour), and then it just dies. I'm not really sure why. This of course causes the ntp daemons on my other machines to eventually kill themselves after enough time of no updates.
What I'm not good at with Linux is accident forensics. My suspicion is that Trogdor's ntpd is dying after not being able to get updates (probably during the time that my crappy cable provider goes on their monthly (sometimes weekly) nighttime outage. What I'd like to know is how can I confirm this. I don't believe that there's enough log information to know right now; is there a way to set that up?
