Integrating External and Internal Clock Synchronization

  title={Integrating External and Internal Clock Synchronization},
  author={Christof Fetzer and Flaviu Cristian},
  journal={Real-Time Systems},
We address the problem of how to integrate fault-tolerant external and internal clock synchronization. In this paper we propose a new external/internal clock synchronization algorithm which provides both external and internal clock synchronization for as long as a majority of the reference time servers (servers with access to reference time) stay correct. When half or more of the reference time servers are faulty, the algorithm degrades to a fault-tolerant internal clock synchronization… CONTINUE READING
