  • 1.  Monitoring the server time

    Posted 12-21-2016 12:00 PM

    Folks, I was wanting to monitor the server time to when if it is wrong one alarm to trigger. all of us know that the UIM do not do that. So, does somebody have some idea?maybe programming a script .bat may throw in log to the logmon probe capture.What do you think?

     

     

    Regards!!

    Why would you not setup ntp or some type of time sync for the server and then monitor that process rather than just checking to see if the system time was off from a time source?

    Gene,

     

     Whether ntp probe has a capable of getting the offset value from robot to ntp sever. (time difference from server to ntp server)

    The big problem is finding a source for the right time. The get_info controller callback will return the time from the robot you are testing. you can write a LUA script to do the callback against the tested robot and a second callback against a server that has a reliable time compare those results. I have done this and it works for a small number of robots.
