(CW Server, ServerMP, Client)
Event logging in ClockWatch will write to a
text file and/or the NT event log. The Event log captures major time setting activities as well as warnings
about system or time setting problems. With the event log
enabled, ClockWatch will record the desired events and warnings.
Logs to NT event log: ClockWatch also writes events to the NT event log.
Choose from these events to log:
- Start time check logs the timeserver and when the time setting
process is started
Time check result logs the result of time setting activity
Connection to timeserver fails logs when ClockWatch is unable to
contact the timeserver (after all retries)
Time change when it exceeds <interval> seconds
You can specify for ClockWatch to log an event if the time change exceeds a
threshold limit value. Insert the threshold time (in seconds) in the box.
Whenever the difference between the system time and standard time exceeds this
value an event entry will be made.
