LXer: Leap second bug in Linux wastes electricity
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 4, 2012
Published at LXer:
Power consumption at Hetzner Online's data centres jumped by "about a megawatt" in the night from 30 June to 1 July due to a kernel bug which resulted in many Linux systems reaching 100% processor usage in dealing with the leap second added at midnight. The problem is described in an email sent by the web hosting company to customers, asking them to check their systems' CPU usage and, where necessary, to restart their systems in order to restore processor usage to normal levels.

location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 30, 2015

Will Linux servers running NTPD be affected by plans to add a leap second in 2015? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 6, 2015
I have read that there are plans to add a leap second in June 2015. At work we are running a number of Linux (Ubuntu) servers with ntpd installed to keep the time in sync and correct across them.
Does anybody know how this time change will affect us, i.e. whether or not we need to do anything other than just let ntpd correct the time for us?
I can find no information on the sites for either NTP or NTPD.
For context, we run PHP/Apache/Solr/MySQL servers, and interact with third-party APIs that supply time-dependent responses, such as historical exchange rates or geolocations.
Java time ahead of linux time (leap second)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 19, 2015
I have changed the Linux system date to Sat Jun 30 23:50:00 2012.
After changing the date I am running a simple java program to log the system date.
The problem is: Java is logging 25 seconds ahead of Linux system time.
Java log: 2012-07-01 00:02:15 INFO Scheduler:19 - Sun Jul 01 00:02:15 GMT 2012
Linux time: Sun Jul 1 00:01:50 GMT 2012
Both are GMT!
I am doing this to analyze the leap second issue.
I checked total no of leap second in /etc/localtime it is 25.
zdump -v /etc/localtime | grep 59:60 | wc -l
I rebooted the system and also restarted the ntp server but still there is 25 second difference!
I am using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 (x86_64) and JAVA 1.7
Please help me out to understand what is wrong? And how to fix this?
Leap Second Adjustments for Linux Servers
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
We run a number of servers for a huge system at work. We have been trying to manage them for the leap second to be added on June 30, 2015. However, me and my colleagues, all are pretty confused with the plethora of varying instructions found online. The instructions differ on different sites, and we do not yet know which one to follow.
Some of the things we have learnt:
Certain version of NTP needs to be installed and running on all servers to account for the leap second.
The kernel version of the servers need to be 2.6.39-400.17.1.el6uek.x86_64 or above.
I am not very experienced in configuring servers or networking. I have been informed that kernel upgrades are not simple and could be risky, to the point that it might need upgrading to new versions of the OS, which in turn might be risky for our system, in terms of compatibility.
The best guide I found online so far is:
However, while the guide explains things bett

Is there a Linux App that can fix corrupt file system
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2012
I am wondering if there is a Linux application that can fix a file corruption issue I have. It is a FAT system on an SD card that I use in my digital camera.
The directory structure is still intact but when I try to enter into a directory with files through dolphin or thunar etc I get an input/output error.
If I navigate to the directory in terminal and run ls I get loads of lines with similar message
ls: cannot access /2M^iğL.▀m!: No such file or directory
I have tried running testdisk on it and also ddrescue but I cannot resolve the issue. Has anyone come across this before and is there a way to fix it?
