This topic describes the Administration > System > NTP Settings panel. NTP is a protocol designed to synchronize the host machine clocks over a network. For more information on NTP see their home page (http://www.ntp.org/).
Note: Security Analytics core hosts must be able to communicate with the SA host with UDP port 123 for NTP time synchronization.
You use the Administration > System > NTP Settings view to configure one or more NTP servers. After you configure an NTP server, Security Analytics uses NTP to synchronize the host machine clocks. You configure multiple NTP servers for Fail Over purposes.
To access this view:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > System.
- In the options panel, select NTP Settings.
This table describes the settings in the NTP Settings panel.
