ntp_response
Network Time Protocol Response

The ntp_response probe tests Network Time Protocol response by requesting status information from the ntp server; or in the case of an SNTP server, requesting the current time.

Alarm messages can be generated based on the response time and the state of the ntp server. Also, quality of Service (QoS) messages can be generated based on availability and state.
