PresenTense NTP Auditor monitors your computer's built-in clock and compares it's time to the real time. Most computer clocks lose or gain time so within a few days, your computer does not show the real time. Many software packages claim to synchronize your computer to atomic clocks or satellite clocks on the internet but how do you really know that your computer's clock is correct? PresenTense Auditor allows you to monitor and record your computer's time and graph the difference between it and up to three national reference clocks on the internet. PresenTense NTP Auditor gives you the assurance that your synchronization software keeps the correct time, all the time. The features of PresenTense NTP Auditor include : Legal Accounting of Computer System Time
PresenTense NTP Auditor creates a primary, secondary and tertiary audit log of local system time with respect to legal sources of UTC and automatically archives logs according year and month.
The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) identifies time keeping requirements for Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) such as 911 call centers. These requirements include continuous accuracy of 100 milliseconds to UTC. PresenTense NTP Auditor actively monitors your computer for conformance to the NENA standard.
PresenTense NTP Auditor supports the generation of real-time logs to a dedicated line printer, creating an official record of system time at configurable intervals or in response to time changes between intervals. Paper logs are created in real-time to safeguard against data loss. See also NASD OATS Regulatory Compliance.
Synchronization Software Watchdog
PresenTense NTP Auditor actively monitors your time synchronization software and raises an alarm condition if your time server or time client is not operating.
Email Alarm Action
PresenTense NTP Auditor can notify you by email if the computer system time drifts beyond the limits specified in the NENA 911 standard, if your time synchronization software fails, or if audit trails cannot be created.
Advanced Statistical Filters
PresenTense NTP Auditor employs advanced statistical algorithms to evaluate clock measurements and mitigate the effects of network jitter and other statistical errors. See also Standard Deviation Statistical Filter.
