Monitoring NTP

After you configure the system as an NTP client, you can use show commands to view information about the NTP servers you assigned and the status of NTP on the interface.

Note: For about 30 minutes after you configure the system as an NTP client, the data varies rapidly, and then starts to stabilize. Wait at least 1 hour before using the data to make decisions about NTP servers.

Many of the fields in the displays of these show commands take their values from the NTP messages. The NTP client uses this data to compare the performance of its NTP servers and to choose a master.
