Figure 1 shows an example system with a common time zone, date, and time management setup. This example is representative of the Multicast or Windows time synchronization methods.

The Metasys Server is the Site Director and is configured to receive the date and time from an intranet time server. The date and time originates at an Internet time server (such as the Naval atomic clock). Using Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP), the intranet time server requests the time from the Internet time server. The Site Director requests the time from the intranet time server. Then, using the Metasys system automatic time synchronization, and the manually configured time zone, the Site Director automatically provides the time zone, date, and time to the other engines and Metasys Servers on the Metasys network.
