ntp_response (Network Time Protocol Response Monitoring)

Last update July 18, 2016

The Network Time Protocol Response Monitoring (ntp_response) probe tests the response of Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) servers. The probe measures the query response time of these servers and also monitors the quality of a network connection through the following parameters:

  • Response time
  • Offset
  • Jitter
  • No contact with the server
  • Server is not updated from any peer
  • Server is not fully initialized

The probe can also request status information from the servers and generates alarms and QoS on response time, offset, jitter and error situations. From version 1.4 and later, the ntp_response probe supports NTPv4.
