whenever a reboot happens there is always a time shift in logs till pppoe is up and ntp server is reachable.
Before: 2020-04-03T10:43:35+00:00 OpenWrt dnsmasq: exiting on receipt of SIGTERM 2020-04-03T10:43:35+00:00 OpenWrt miniupnpd: shutting down MiniUPnPd After: 2020-04-03T10:00:25+00:00 OpenWrt netifd: Network device 'eth0' link is up 2020-04-03T10:00:25+00:00 OpenWrt netifd: Interface 'wan' has link connectivity 2020-04-03T10:00:25+00:00 OpenWrt netifd: Interface 'wan' is setting up now
from what I understand the system date and time are set by
/etc/init.d/sysfixtime script by finding the most recent timestamp of any file found in
if that is the case why not use /var/log instead of /etc ?
log files should have the most recent timestamp so when the system reboots the logs timestamp should continue from where they left off before reboot.
