I have a NAM blade in my 6513. I would like the packet captures to be time stamped with NTP time. I configured the NAM to pull time from the switch which uses NTP. There doesn't seem to be a way to get the packets stamped with the NTP time.
I am not sure whether Bruce's problem is that the NAM blade is not learning NTP or whether the problem is that the NAM blade is learning NTP but the contents of packet captures are not using the NTP time. Perhaps Bruce can clarify.
Current NAM System Time: Thu 06 Jul 2006, 09:09:35 PDT
Synchronize NAM System Time With: X Switch
The above shows that time is accurate, the switch gets it's time from NTP and the NAM gets it's time from the switch. The problem is that captures are not time stamped with the NTP absolute times.
Times in the capture decodes start with 0.000, as a reference, and count up from there, not absolute times. Is there a way to make them true NTP times?
I also tried setting the NAM's time source to NTP, using the gateway address for the NTP source. That produced the same results.
There appears to be no real NTP time stamping capability, something that the Fluke Optiview Series II Gigabit sniffer won't do either, even from it's XP OS level.
Thanks again. It appears that I may need to find a better method of using relative times or investigate other types of sniffers to run my tests, the sources of which are done in NTP times but not ethernet.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
