I'm switching over to PRTG from another SNMP monitoring software. My current software shows me a warring if any of my switches become unsynchronized from their associated NTP servers. How would I do the same thing in PRTG?

Dear ktimm,

the closest sensor to that would be the SNTP sensor. It however compares with the probe's system time.

So it would error if the switches time was off but not necessarily if it doesn't have any NTP associations?

Dear ktimm,

that is correct.

In PRTG, you can include custom scripts though. If you can create a script which returns the result in a PRTG complaint format, you can use the corresponding sensor to run it, which would be the EXE/Script Sensor or EXE/Script Advanced Sensor.

That is beyond my ability in PRTG currently. I'll play with the SNTP sensor and see if that will get me close enough. Thanks.

The SNTP looks to be working. Thanks.
