Is Network Time Protocol (ntpd) not working for everyone right now? Get current Network Time Protocol (ntpd) outages, status, timeouts and issue reports today.
The Network Time Protocol is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks
This graph shows Network Time Protocol errors and response times for the website over the past day. Website status and slowness is related to downtime for Network Time Protocol and errors for their site.
This chart above shows Network Time Protocol error reports submitted in the past 24 hours (one day) compared to the recent average over similar days. The status of Network Time Protocol is marked as "down" when the number of reported errors is significantly higher than the average errors.
The Network Time Protocol is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. In operation since before 1985, NTP is one of the oldest Internet protocols in current use. NTP was designed by David L. Mills of the University of Delaware. NTP is intended to synchronize all participating computers to within a few milliseconds of Coordinated Universal Time. It uses the intersection algorithm, a modified version of Marzullo's algorithm, to select accurate time servers and is designed to mitigate the effects of variable network latency. NTP can usually maintain time to within tens of milliseconds over the public Internet, and can achieve better than one millisecond accuracy in local area networks under ideal conditions. Asymmetric routes and network congestion can cause errors of 100 ms or more.
