How to enable atomic clocks mode cockroachdb

I’ve read it here you guys have “experimental mode” using atomic clocks, but can’t find documentation for it, how can I enable it ?

Hi @kocoten1992! There are two relevant flags. --linearizable will turn on spanner style linearizability (though this is not recommended for production environments). You’ll also want to lower --max-offset, which is documented on https://www.cockroachlabs.com/docs/stable/start-a-node.html

It turns out my information is out of date. I’m told we’ve never really tested this mode and so we don’t currently support it and the flag has been removed.

Thanks for answer my question @dan <3, can I ask this too.

Do we have any plan to support that mode in the future ?

It’s always under consideration, but it’s not on the immediate roadmap.
