Monitor System time vs Current time for all Linux/Windows servers


Can we monitor server time vs Current time for all Linux/Windows servers in our environment and alert if the time is not the same? Need to do this for all servers in our environment(>1000).

Kiran, There is nothing in the product that does this automatically, but this would be an easy plugin to write. Then just run it on the 'Linux" and "Windows" class of servers and you'd have back a plot/list/alert of every system which was not compliant. I'm not sure how to get this value from Windows machines programatically, but I'm sure it's possible.

For simplicity it might be easier to develop a different plugin for Linux .vs. Windows. Then when you instantiate the plugin, you run each of the plugins on a different class of hosts. One for all the Linux machines, one for the Windows machines.
