NTP Time Server and Time Services Overview (QFabric System)
Network Time Protocol (NTP) synchronizes the time among all of the various devices in the QFabric system to an external time server. This ensures that time-stamped events, like log entries and database transactions, can be correlated between multiple devices in the QFabric system. The QFabric system can only be in client mode.
Additionally, you can authenticate time synchronization to ensure that the QFabric system obtains its time services only from known sources. By default, network time synchronization is unauthenticated. We strongly encourage you to configure authentication of network time services.
