Ironware (MLXe) Syslog Timestamps - Millisecond Precision?

Is there a configuration option in Ironware 5.x to enable millisecond precision in the syslog timestamps?

Hi Mike,

     This is all I can find re time; Help it helps.

Time stamps

The contents of the time stamp differ depending on whether you have set the time and date on the onboard system clock:

If you have set the time and date on the onboard system clock, the date and time are shown in the following format:

mm dd hh:mm:ss

where:

mm – abbreviation for the name of the month

dd – day

hh – hours

mm – minutes

ss – seconds

For example, “Oct 15 17:38:03” means October 15 at 5:38 PM and 3 seconds.

If you have not set the time and date on the onboard system clock, the time stamp shows the amount of time that has passed since the device was booted, in the following format:

<num>d<num>h<num>m<num>s

where:

<num>d – day

<num>h – hours

<num>m – minutes

<num>s – seconds

For example, “188d1h01m00s” means the device had been running for 188 days, 11 hours, one minute, and zero seconds when the Syslog entry with this time stamp was generated.

Synchronizing time - NTP

After the system peer is chosen, the system time is synchronized using one of the following ways based on the time difference with system peer:

< 128 msec - The system clock is adjusted slowly towards the system peer time reference time.

> 128 msec and < 1000 sec - The system clock is stepped to the system peer reference time and the NTP state information is cleared.

> 1000 sec - NTP is operationally disabled. The admin should set the time to the current UTC time.

Thanks

Michael.

You can also check the precisiom of the NTP using the show ntp status command

Displaying NTP status

Use the show ntp status command to display the NTP status

Brocade#show ntp status

Clock is synchronized, stratum 4, reference clock is 10.20.99.174

precision is 2**-16

reference time is D281713A.80000000 (03:21:29.3653007907 GMT+00 Thu Dec 01 2011)

clock offset is -2.3307 msec, root delay is 24.6646 msec

root dispersion is 130.3376 msec, peer dispersion is 84.3335 msec

system poll interval is 64, last clock update was 26 sec ago

NTP server mode is enabled, NTP client mode is enabled

NTP master mode is disabled, NTP master stratum is 8

NTP is not in panic mode
