Leap Second

Problem

My nasty java app is eating up all the CPU it can get. (Possibly sharing with something else equally unlikely that is eating the rest up -- in my case, milter-greylist.) This CPU consumption started at the moment of a leap second.

Discussion

There's a bug in either ntp or some versions of the kernel (>>http://lwn.net/Articles/504658/) that is causing some classes of applications to freak out.

Solution

service ntpd stop; date -s "`date`"; service ntpd start

Everything should be happy again.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
