What will happen if the clock time on the devices is not synchronised with the NTP server?

It is recommended that all Nuclias devices have the same time set on them, this we recommend doing by updating through NTP protocol. Since this allows the correct timing of commands and monitoring/statistical data to be sent to and from the Nuclias server.

If the clock times are not synchronised correctly, the server may discard (depending on the timestamp) or accept the data received from the device, resulting in eventlogs, traffic usage, client information and summary reports displaying incorrect information. Some events may not be executed correctly, therefore we strongly advise users to use an NTP Server.
