"Time Map" Tab
Under the Time Map tab, TimeKeeper TKL visualizes the structure of the timing network environment, including all time sources, and other clients found on the network. Espcially with complex networks, this visualization tool can be of assistance when it comes to identifying architectural or accuracy problems.
