Clock skew

Post by admin » Thu Oct 07, 2010 3:23 pm

The internal clock of bifferboard has a clock skew of about 15%, which can result in gaps on the time lines when data is uploaded in large intervals or when recovering from a connectivity downtime.

I patched the kernel to get in sync again.

To apply this to your bifferboards needs you to flash the firmware of the bifferboard as explained on getting started page. Sorry there is no more easy way for an update.

Many thanks to user skyewright who discovered the gaps and helped my finding the reason for that!
