Clock synchronisation is a key problem in distributed systems. When we can send a message across the world in less than a second, it’s important that everyone knows what time it is. The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a commonly used service for keeping time across wide area networks. This talk will look in detail at how NTP works, and its limitations. We will also consider alternatives to NTP , which can deliver time even more accurately on local networks.
