Default "Leap Second" 'bug'

Just wondering... did Saturday's "Leap Second" bit your infrastructure?


Did you do something special (like Google did) to prevent chaos?

We only had one infrastructure VM go down. I know a guy who had to
spend the hours of 2AM to 7AM dealing with it.

Nope, that a murmur, not a peep, barely even a log entry anywhere. And
no whinging customers (surprisingly!) Our ntp servers just synced with
the upstream stratum and carried on business as usual

I'd like to boast that my time servers are awesome and the team running
them even more awesome, but the truth is this one took us by surprise.
You fellows in the US and Europe might be amazed by this, but down here
in Africa the leap-second wasn't announced AT ALL. A few folk here and
there knew of it, that's all. Me? I had to find out from a Google news
feed on Sunday evening.....

You should have been following me on Twitter. I went with a text-only
take on the "Brace yourselves" meme.

Being just a user of Linux desktop applications the leap-second issue
has no relevance to my activities.

However, I have read in several places that any potential problem on Linux
systems had been traced to a bug that was fixed several kernel releases
ago. Anyone who keeps up to date should have experienced nothing.

Sorry, no can do. I don't do twitter.

It's not personal, I just have this pro-verbosity thing going :-)
