Synchronizing Time Using Presentense
PresenTense offers you an alternative to the limited functionality of synchronizing with Microsoft W32Time program. PresenTense, will not only synchronize all of the Windows PCs on the network, but also provides alert notification and a audit trail which is not available from the Microsoft W32Time (Windows Time Service). PresenTense Client and Server software is a has Graphical User Interface (GUI) based program that can provide a primary and back-up time reference for redundancy.
The PresenTense NTP Auditor program provides an audit trail of the PC’s time by comparing the PC’s time to up to three different NTP Time references. This program can provide a continuous print-out for a hard-copy proof that each PC was synchronized at any given moment in time. It also logs this information in a text file sorted automatically by month and day. The time is sampled at set intervals and the error of the PC’s time compared to the reference NTP Time Servers is permanently captured. If the time of the PC is manually set by someone at any time between the scheduled samples, the program automatically triggers an unscheduled sample to permanently log how far off from UTC the PC was manually set and when the event occurred. Once the PC is resynchronized or manually set again, another unscheduled sample occurs again and the time of this occurrence is logged.
