System clock accuracy and drift

I’m running a node service and need to confirm that the system time is accurate. I noticed that ntpdate and sntp commands aren’t available when I SSHed into my container. Is this something I have to setup myself or does guarantee accurate system time some other way?

We run ntpd on the host that your container is running on, which exists in a different namespace, so you don’t see it as a process. But, rest assured, the time should be accurate.
