The following minor features have been added:

  • Add probe-only interface detection mode to avoid Netlink:
    hotplug_detection_mode probe
  • Raise alarm on secondary servos that fail to operate continuously for 30 seconds or more such as due to clock comparison failure.
  • Use COMMUNICATIONS_CAPABILITIES TLV to agree multicast vs unicast delay request capabilities with corresponding PTP node.
  • Extend application of ‘epoch guard’ for hosts with multiple NICs.
  • Convert example scripts to Python 3.
  • Report outlier statistics in long term stats.
    Note: Frequent outliers are always expected as this is intrinsic to the adaptive algorithm.
