PTP Sync Rate

A PTP sync message rate of roughly 1 packet/second is a good tradeoff between network traffic and synchronization accuracy. A faster sync rate can reduce the accuracy of the synchronization rather than improve it. Even though TimeKeeper supports a rate of 64 sync messages per second it is not recommended to set the rate that high it since it can reduce the synchronization accuracy a great deal.
