When properly configured, TimeKeeper is able to detect and measure a network route asymmetry.
To setup a network to test for an asymmetry:
- Setup a TimeKeeper instance on a system configured to be a PTP or NTP client to a local VelaSync server/Grandmaster (via LAN). This will be Source (0).
- At the other end of the network route that you wish to measure, you must have another PTP or NTP server with a GPS reference.
To enable measuring a network route for asymmetry:
- Navigate to Configuration > TimeKeeper Configuration > Sources, and check the box Detect asymmetry for the NTP or PTP sources you want to measure.
