SNTP is an effective tool for the synchronization of networked devices where accurate time stamps are important to the integrity of the network application. NicheStack SNTP is an optimized implementation of version 4 of Simple Network Time Protocol specifically engineered for the requirements of device management and networked applications.
Providing a simple API, the UDP-based SNTP client can be configured with the addresses of a number of external servers, periodically issuing synchronization requests and dynamically managing the list to ensure that busy or unresponsive servers are only queried as a last resort.
NicheStack SNTP is distributed as full ANSI "C" source code, is RFC compliant and has been extensively tested for interoperability with multiple SNTP and NTP server reference implementations.
NicheStack SNTP also includes enhancements to NicheTool, the most comprehensive debug and system optimization tool available in any commercially TCP/IP stack. Menu driven and customizable by development engineers for any added components, this very useful utility greatly assists the process of optimizing NicheStack for the memory usage and performance characteristics of the application.
