Monitoring the NTP Server

eG Enterprise offers a specialized NTP Server monitoring model to monitor the availability and overall health of the NTP server.

The Network layer of this model is mapped to a Network test that pings the NTP server at configured intervals to evaluate the health of the network connection between the client and the server. If the network link to the server is of a poor quality and may potentially break, this test will proactively alert administrators to it. The details on configuring the Network test have been discussed in the Network Test of the Unix and Windows Servers Monitoring Model.
