Example Configurations

Linux PTP provides the following example configurations (profiles) containing those attributes which differ from the default configuration. Refer to ptp4l(8) for the definition and possible values for each configuration option.

NOTE: The settings in the default.cfg: are assumed unless overridden by a custom configuration.

Transparent Clock

Transparent Clock is used by bridges or routers to assist clocks in measuring and adjusting for packet delay. The transparent clock computes the variable delay as the PTP packets pass through the switch or the router.
