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 (

Note: Security Analytics core hosts must be able to communicate with the SA host with UDP port 123 for NTP time synchronization.
