Synchronization of Operating System Time

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Windows

This check is a simple check of the correct setting of the current system time of the target host. It simply compares the local time on the monitoring server with that measured by the agent on the target host. It is not very accurate since it does not account for the systematic time delay between the output of the time by the agent and the actual processing of that data by Checkmk.

Its advantage - however - is that it works on any Windows host (with an agent of version of 1.1.10 or later) - regardless of the method used to synchronize the time.

Levels can be set for making the check warn/crit if the time difference exceeds the configured limits.


One service is created for each host supporting this check. Currently this is the windows agent in version 1.1.10 or later.
