Purpose

This article provides information on OBAS product and leap seconds.

Introduction

Leap seconds are a periodic one-second adjustment of Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) in order to keep a system's time of day close to the mean solar time. However, the Earth's rotation speed varies in response to climatic and geological events, and due to this, UTC leap seconds are irregularly spaced and unpredictable. This article seeks to provide information regarding the leap seconds themselves, along with addressing how Red Hat Enterprise Linux handles the insertion of one.

Upcoming Leap Second Events

The next leap second insertion is scheduled for June 30th, 2015 at 23:59:60 UTC.

Known issues

There were no issues have been reported regarding leap second and its influence on OBAS during the last three leap second event on 2012.

Based on the current experience, leap second will not affect OBAS.
