Time monitor




Looking for a way to monitor windows/linux/cisco device clock and compare it with a global time server.

I've managed to use the WMI sensor, but it only compares with the prtg server and not an undpendant server..

I'm afraid but by default there is no sensor available for this task. It would be possible to script this task and transfer the result into PRTG.

Please have a look at our custom sensors.

You need your PRTG to run the sensor anyway, so keeping your PRTG server tightly in sync with the global time server will get you there.
