NTPv4 MIB

NTPv4 MIB

Last Updated: December 7, 2012

The NTPv4 MIB feature introduces the Network Time Protocol Version 4 (NTPv4) MIB in Cisco software. It defines data objects that represent the current status of NTP entities. These data objects are accessed using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and are used to monitor and manage local NTP entities.

This module describes the NTPv4 MIB.

Information About the NTPv4 MIB

NTPv4 MIB

The Network Time Protocol Version 4 (NTPv4) MIB feature, which is based on RFC 5907, defines data objects that represent the current status of NTP entities. These data objects are accessed using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and are used to monitor and manage local NTP entities.

The data objects contain the following information about the NTP entities:

  • Connectivity to the upstream NTP servers and to hardware reference clocks.
  • Product
  • Vendor
  • Version

By using the information contained in the data objects, you can detect failures before the overall time synchronization of the network is impacted.

The following object groups that are addressed in RFC 5907 are supported in the NTPv4 MIB:

  • ntpAssociation
  • ntpEntInfo
  • ntpEntStatus

The following object groups that are addressed in RFC 5907 are not supported in the NTPv4 MIB:

  • ntpEntControl
  • ntpEntNotifObjects

How to Verify the NTPv4 MIB

No special configuration is needed for this feature. This feature is enabled by default.

Verifying NTPv4 MIB

To verify information about the NTPv4 MIB, perform any or all of the following optional commands in any order.

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    show ntp associations [detail]

2.   show ntp status

3.    show ntp info

4.    show ntp packets


DETAILED STEPS
Step 1   show ntp associations [detail]


Example:
Device> show ntp associations detail

(Optional) Displays detailed status of NTP associations.

Step 2   show ntp status


Example:
Device> show ntp status
(Optional) Displays the status of NTP.
Step 3   show ntp info


Example:
Device> show ntp info
(Optional) Displays information about NTP entities.
Step 4   show ntp packets


Example:
Device> show ntp packets
(Optional) Displays information about NTP packets.
