NTP limitations C6500Sup7203B

Hello,

we are planing to migrate our NTP infrastructure from a server based to a network based solution.

Therefore I'm looking for guidelines or recommendations, how many ntp clients a Cat6500Sup7203B can handle reliable (or better how many ntp requests per second).

We have about 4000 devices (server, switches and routers) that will act as NTP client.

Thanks

Hendrik

Re: NTP limitations C6500Sup7203B

All devices don't have to go back to a single device for ntp . If you have the common core distribution ,access model you can have the distribution boxes pull their time from the core , the access boxes can then pull their time from the distribution boxes instead of having it traverse the entire network to get its time . NTP is a very efficient protocol and doesn't require a lot of packet traffic to sync .
