high cpu load due to leap second


since july 1st 00:00 2012 I’ve seen high cpu load due to some java app. In my case it was the adaptec storage agent.

strace -p

showed me some problem with the realtime clock

Clock: inserting leap second 23:59:60 UTC

dmesg showed me this output

you don’t have to restart any serivce
just run the following:

/etc/init.d/ntp stop
date `date +"%m%d%H%M%C%y.%S"`
/etc/init.d/ntp start

so due to an leap second all machines running adaptec storage_agent got high cpu load :-(

this guy reportet the bug too:
