 Alert Definitions 

If Master and Slaves disagree by
If any one machine is off by
If the average system variance is   
or more milliseconds
or more milliseconds
or more milliseconds

The items in this section allow you to specify the type and amount of time variance that will be tolerated before Monitor generates an alert.

    The default values are suggestions only. The acceptable range of variance depends on your individual network and sync requirements. Examine your scan results to get a good feel for the range of normal variance on your network, and then choose settings that will only flag problems that you consider serious enough for intervention.

    If Master and Slaves disagree by or more milliseconds
    The synchronization between the master and its slaves is critical to overall time accuracy on the network. It is a good idea to specify a closer tolerance for these systems than for others on the network.

    If any one machine is off by or more milliseconds
    This specifies the outside limit of variance for any single machine, regardless of its role (server or client).

    If the average system variance is or more milliseconds
    Raises an alert if the overall synchronization of your network exceeds your limits.

Settings in this section define the actions that Monitor will take when an alert is triggered.

    Record details in Event Viewer Log
    Checking this box instructs Monitor to put alert information in the Windows Event logs. If the Summary event only checkbox is checked, only a single summary event will be entered in the Event logs. If Summary event only is unchecked, an individual event will be entered for each machine scanned.

    Send email alert notice
    When this box is checked, Monitor will send an error message similar to the sample below to the email recipients specified on the Email Setup pages. The High Priority checkbox will send the mail marked High Priority.

      Domain Time II Monitor Alert

      This is an automated alert from Domain Time II Monitor. The system time variance exceeds your minimum alert level. The attached text file contains the scan data. If your email client cannot open attachments, please use the Control Panel applet to examine the scan data.
