Date and Time mismatch on Supervisor and workers
« on: June 05, 2006, 04:33:36 AM »
Hi,

I am in the process of reading the documentation. I have a question:

Q1: What happen if time/date are different on each machines?
Q2: Does Qube! detects it and fix it?
Q3: time stamp uses the Supervisor date/time or the local machine time?

Tx
Dave.

Hey Dave,
   

      Actually qube! will not correct the time and date on your machines.  This is because we assume you've probably got a better solution in place specifically for maintaining your host clocks.  (Check out NTP http://www.ntp.org/)

      However that doesn't mean that qube! doesn't care about synchronized clocks.  Internally qube! keeps track of the time difference relative to the supervisor.  This is cached in a file locally called %TEMP%\time_<username>.tmp, so all actions are recorded relative to the supervisor's clock.

      Keep the questions rolling in.

      Thanks,
