tpm2_clockrateadjust [OPTIONS] ADJUSTER
tpm2_clockrateadjust(1) - Adjusts the rate at which clock and time are updated on the TPM so one can better match real time. With no argument, the command is invoked but the clock rate is not altered. With an argument, the tool will adjust the clock and time period. The command can either increase or decrease the clock period via 3 distinct granularities: course, medium and fine. To specify this, the argument can be a string of 1 to 3 characters of all 's' or 'f'.
