TimeKeeper does a lot of things - operating as a timing client, a timing server, a grandmaster, and so on, supporting all of the standard timing protocols.
To be usable from an embedded scale to enterprise though, it has to do more than implement some protocols. It has to support a wide variety of tools and integrate with many services. Here’s a short example list:
- Authentication - RADIUS/TACACS+, ssh, etc.
- Web interface tools for visualization and reporting
- SNMP, syslog, email alerting (including SNMP MIB support)
- Service management
Also we’ll go over what add-on tools are provided with TimeKeeper and how to make use of them, TimeKeeper file formats, configuration details, and more.
First let’s go over the full set of configuration details available for use in TimeKeeper.
