The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used in networks of all types and
sizes for time synchronization of servers, workstations, and other
networked equipment.  As time synchronization is more and more a
mission-critical service, standardized means for monitoring and
management of this subsystem of a networked host are required to
allow operators of such a service to set up a monitoring system that
is platform- and vendor-independent.  This document provides a
standardized collection of data objects for monitoring the NTP entity
of such a network participant and it is part of the NTP version 4
standardization effort.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
