Inaccurate time stamps make it more difficult to correlate events and can lead to an inaccurate analysis. Determining the correct time a particular event occurred on a system is critical when conducting forensic analysis and investigating system events. Sources outside the configured acceptable allowance (drift) may be inaccurate.

This module ensures that maxpoll is configured to 10 unless default:ntp_maxpoll._config[maxpoll] is defined in which case that value will be used.

Configuration

default:ntp_maxpoll._config[maxpoll]

Maximum interval between requests sent to the server as a power of 2 in seconds. (default 10)
