Why is dbus-org.freedesktop.timedate1 started so frequently?

syslog:

  • I also wondered my self. I could not really find a satisfying answer. The service it self is meant to be called and finish directly. It gets activated automatically by a special message on the dbus. So the fact that it is there so frequently is no bug, just a result of getting that signal on dbus so often. Has something to do with systemd time synchronization, but it is really awkward to get so much logging for that reason.
