ClustrixDB needs system clocks to be in sync for a number of reasons. The logs on each node use each system's clock to record events, so if all the clocks are in sync, it is much easier to diagnose issues and create timelines. Synchronized Clocks are also required for software upgrades and the system Now that you have completed installing ClustrixDB, you will need to verify that NTP is running so that the nodes system clocks will remain synchronized.
ClustrixDB requires that system clocks to be in synch to perform upgrades and so that log timestamps can be correlated. ClustrixDB will generate Database Alerts if the clocks skew too much between nodes in a cluster.
The ClustrixDB installer automatically installs and configures ntp. However, you should run the following steps to To verify ntp is running correctly:
