Question on ntp.log



  • Running SG-2440 & v2.3.4 release.  My NTP log is not logging regularily and I'd like to know if I have something incorrectly configured or if it is doing what it is supposed to do.

    This is the tail of my log from approx 24 hours ago:

    and attached is the part of the NTP settings relevant to logs.
    I do have ntp server settings page defined for only LAN (ie: only lan is highlighted in the settings).

    I don't understand why there are no log entries since nearly 24 hrs ago.  If I open the settings page and then save I get the above log entries.



  • The NTP service on pfSense will only log things when the NTP service is started/stopped/restarted.



  • OK, thanks.  I was afraid something was not working correctly.
