No NTP servers configured-checkpoint-gaia,ipso

Vendor: checkpoint

OS: gaia,ipso

Description:
Many odd and complicated outages occur due to lack of clock synchronization between devices. In addition, logs may have the wrong time stamps. Indeni will alert when a device has no NTP servers configured.

Remediation Steps:
Configure one or more NTP servers to be used by this device for clock synchronization.

How does this work?
This script parses through the configuration database located in /config/active directory to retrieve the configured NTP servers.

Why is this important?
This metric records configured NTP servers. NTP servers are used to sync the time across all hosts and network devices. This is critical for things such as event correlation and logging. With this information Indeni alerts if the NTP configuration on cluster members are not the same.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could login and manually run the command.
