comment What is the largest hardware clock update the Linux kernel “11-minute mode” can make?
I couldn't find any reference information on 11-minute mode in the kernel and what limitations it might have. However, ntpd does check that the system time and the ntp server time are within 1000 seconds. If not, it won't even try to correct the system time. It thinks it might be that far off on purpose. Can you think of some way to verify that this kernel mode is limiting you rather than ntpd?

comment Does IPTables take advantage of multicore processors?
@Nils The interrupts generated by an interface could be redirected to another, less busy CPU. Also, multiple interfaces could have their interrupts sent to different CPUs to spread the load. I think you're right about traffic from a single interface not being balanced across CPUs on a per-packet basis.

comment Does IPTables take advantage of multicore processors?
I'm not sure why Chopper3 closed this question. To answer it though: Iptables is really just the userspace front-end for the linux firewall which is netfilter. Netfilter is really a system of hooks in the kernel around packet processing. Each packet is processed by the kernel by triggering an interupt. Whether your kernel balances interrupts across multiple CPUs depends on how old it is. See this thread on StackOverflow about it. stackoverflow.com/questions/7467688/…

comment linux + configure/setup new user in order to disable password from SCP command
You can submit SFTP commands in HEREDOC format in a shell script, but SFTP (which is simply the next generation replacement for SCP) does not support inputting a password in batch mode. In this case, you cannot even use an expect script.

If you want to use SCP, there aren't any other options. You could use other languages besides expect, but these two approaches are the only ones available. If you really can't use either, you'll need to use a less secure protocol for file transfer.
