    Using SN2100 or SN2700 as PTP master clock?

    billt

      Is it possible to configure one of the SN2100 or SN2700 to act as a PTP master clock for the machines connected to it?

       

      Ignoring uplinks, lets say we have 10 machines with connectx-4 cards connected to the switch. I'd like for these machines to have their clocks synchronized via PTP and for the switch to act as the (grand)master even though it has no external GPS input or anything. I don't care that the switch's time may be wrong. But I do care that the connected machines all use the same clock from it.

       

      I can run linuxptp on the client hosts as normal. Is it possible to run linux ptp on the switch itself and generate the ptp clock packets to all the connected hosts?
