| Documentation\Configuration\Server\Broadcast Time
This page allows you to control the broadcast behavior of the Domain Time II Server. By default, Domain Time II Server only uses network
broadcasts to send cascade and advisory messages to Slaves and Clients to ensure time is propagated correctly throughout the network.
However, if required, you may also set the Server to send out periodic time sync broadcasts for clients (Domain Time or other third-party
clients) that understand broadcast time.
The Domain Time II Control Panel Applet - Broadcast Time Tab
Domain Time II Control Broadcasts
Domain Time II uses a highly efficient time distribution hierarchy to ensure that time is distributed and updated extremely accurately across the network.
This is accomplished by communication among the various Domain Time components using accurate time protocols and special synchronization control messages
(see Cascading Time Hierarchy for details).
Domain Time II Server can provide two types of Broadcast Time - Heartbeats (using the Domain Time II UDP protocol) and/or NTP Broadcasts (using the NTP UDP protocol).
Using Broadcast Time can have significant consequences to your network; be sure you understand these options before enabling them. See the
When to use Heartbeats and NTP Broadcasts page for a detailed discussion of these options.
