Note: If the NTP service is not available, then this field displays a value of
If you are seeing NA in the datacell:
Please check the followings:
- Geneos process owner can run ntpq -p and get output
- In netprobe log, /usr/sbin is presented in INFO: Current path /usr/sbin when netprobe started
- In command line: which ntpq shows the path: /usr/sbin/ntpq
