Updated chrony packages that fix one bug are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 6.
The chrony suite, chronyd and chronyc, is an advanced implementation of theNetwork Time Protocol (NTP), specially designed to support systems withintermittent connections.
It can synchronize the system clock with NTP servers,hardware reference clocks, and manual input.
It can also operate as an NTPv4(RFC 5905) server or peer to provide a time service to other computers in thenetwork.This update fixes the following bug:* When chronyd was configured with the smoothtime directive and the leaponlyoption to perform a server leap smear, the direction of smoothing could bedetermined incorrectly due to numerical errors in floating point operations.This consequently caused an assertion failure and chronyd terminatedunexpectedly.

A patch has been applied, which ensures that the direction iscalculated and applied correctly when small offsets are employed in a timeupdate. (BZ#1401533)Users of chrony are advised to upgrade to these updated packages.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released erratarelevant to your system have been applied.For details on how to apply this update, refer to:https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
