[ntp:questions] Testing Sync Across Several Systems

Hello,
We use Nagios to monitor our system - you can use one of the prepared
checks (check_ntp_time) to monitor the synchronization of your nodes.
You'll need the NRPE-Plugin for Nagios also. No costs involved (except
your time, of course).
Regards,
Stefan

Greetings:

We have about 50 Linux/Solaris/Windows boxes running ntpd at several
different sites. Some of the systems from time to time go out of sync.
My question is there a way to test ntpd machines are all in sync with
the master
server?

I was thinking of using ssh to get on to each machine to do a date and
then go back to the master and do a date and compare, but this seems
problematic at best. What do people do to check that all machines are
in sync?

Thanks in Advanced for any help.

   Tom
