MEINBERG SyncMon – Technology and Capabilities behind MEINBERG NetSync Technology
NetSync PTPv2 and NTP Network Monitoring functionality in Meinberg products
The MEINBERG NetSync Monitor logs and reports the synchronization status and performance of remote PTPv2 nodes and Boundary Clocks as well as NTP servers. The NetSync monitoring technology can store, send and display the current and past synchronization status of PTPv2 in the network by exchanging the standard Delay Request, Delay Response, Sync and Follow-up messages and an additional TLV for the PTP status information of the monitored devices.
Douglas Arnold, PhD and Mark Street from JTime! Meinberg USA will demonstrate the MEINBERG LANTIME M4000 acting as primary reference time clock (PRTC) serving PTPv2 to the network. The M4000 will also fulfill the role of NetSync Monitoring System (MS) for PTP and NTP nodes. The design of MEINBERG NetSync allows for multiple Monitoring nodes in a network, not necessarily the PRTC. The monitored slave nodes at the edge of the network will consist of a MEINBERG LANTIME M1000 IMS, LANTIME M600, MEINBERG SyncBoxN2X, and a lonely Windows 7 workstation running NTPd.
Key points of the demonstration include the NetSync “reverse PTP” technology, NetSync node configuration, graphical demonstration of each PTP slave sync performance over time and a short explanation of the key data points gathered by the Monitoring System. We will also demonstrate an external application that can be used to archive, display and export the NetSync data for each node over time.
