Ok, there is one GPS (with PPS out on a second output, going to GPIO 18 on the 
rpi)

I did a little change (commented out the two NMEA sources.

I am running gpsd for the GPS source.

It is a Dragino LoRaWAN/GPS hat.

As I mentioned, the GPS is functioning (what appears to me) correctly.

I will add refclocks logging right now.

I will most likely add a second GPS, or more probably, tie it into my Rubidium 
standard.

As for the PPS signal, ppstest /dev/pps0 give the expected output, finds the 
PPS signal, and is happy with it.

Chronyc sources just does not seem to recognize it.

No, the problem probably is that PPS only gives time to the second and gives
no idea which second it is. Ie, it is time%1sec. It needs something else and
it needs to know that that something else is actually already working to give
the time with an accuaracy of a bit better than a second. In your case you
told the pps to use nmea, and nmea was not working at all, so the PPS had
nothing to use to tell it which second it was. Lichvar gave you some suggestions. You might try them.



Thank you!

No problem. JUst remember that we have no information about your system except
what you tell us.



I have been using Linux for a grand total of one week, so some patience will be 
much appreciated.

My Pi does not seem to send email directly to anyone other than myself, so it 
is a 2 step process to send anything from it.

As for locking to the GPS, the time/date are being set correctly from it now, I 
would just like some redundancy, and a tad more accuracy, if it can be had.

But I am a bit confused. Do you have two or 3 GPS receivers attached to
your Pi? Or are all of GPS, the two NMEA and PPS coming (as I suspect) from one 
GPS receiver. If my suspicion is true, then that is not redundancy.
The various attempts t read 3 different times from the same receiver could
actually make things worse, not better (the readings fighting with each other).

Secondly try to get one thing going at a time. GPS, whatever it is (what
reports the gps to the SHM?-- are you using gpsd?) seems to work now. THe NMEA
are not. Use what works to gine the PPS its seconds-resolution, so PPS can
deliver its soperior accuracy, and so you can see if you can get it working.
Worry about redundancy later.


I will get more info shortly.

Thank you for your understanding.

Relevant chrony.conf snipet:
You do not know what is relevant do you?


# offline sources

What is putting this info into shm?

refclock SHM 1 refid NMEA precision 1e-9
refclock SOCK /tmp/chrony.ttyS0.sock refid NMEA

Two different sources with the same name. That could cause confusion. Where do 
these come from?


refclock PPS /dev/pps0 poll 0 refid PPS lock NMEA

GPS reports. So why not lock to it?

Neither of your nmea sources report so PPS has nothing to lock to.

What is this source?


pi@raspberrypi:~ $

I don't see anything unusual(?) in the log...

Do you see anything? Why not give us 10 or 20 lines from the refclock log?



I am not an old hand at this......

Thank you!

Brian

You tell it to lock to NMEA. Do you actually have an NMEA refclock running?
Ie you might want to show us what your complete chrony.conf is.

Also in your sources, what sources are listed? Ie, what is the complete output 
of chronyc sources command.

In the logging of the refclock, are there any entries? Do they give you a
clue?

Good morning.

Running chrony 3.1, raspberry Pi 3 model B with the latest Raspbian Jessie.

Have GPS working to set the clock with no issue.

Have good PPS on /dev/pps0

From searching the archives I have :
refclock PPS /dev/pps0 poll 0 refid PPS lock NMEA

Appended to the end of /etc/chrony/chrony.conf

Running chronyd produces no errors

PPS shows in chronyc sources

However the #? next to PPS never changes (48 hours so far) and there are no 
corrections.

Any thoughts?

Thank you all!

Brian
