Chrony NTP 🔗
The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector provides this integration as the Chrony NTP monitor with the SignalFx Smart Agent receiver. The integration monitors NTP data from a chrony instance.
This monitor is available in the SignalFx Smart Agent Receiver, which is part of the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector.
Follow these steps to deploy the integration:
Deploy the Splunk OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform.
Configure the monitor, as described in the next section.
The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector allows embedding a Smart Agent monitor configuration in an associated Smart Agent Receiver instance.
Note: Providing a Chrony NTP monitor entry in your Smart Agent or Collector configuration is required for its use. Use the appropriate form for your agent type.
Smart Agent 🔗
To activate this monitor in the Smart Agent, add the following to your agent configuration:
monitors: # All monitor config goes under this key - type: collectd/chrony ... # Additional config
See Smart Agent example configuration for an autogenerated example of a YAML configuration file, with default values where applicable.
Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector 🔗
To activate this monitor in the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector, add the following to your agent configuration:
receivers: smartagent/chrony: type: collectd/chrony ... # Additional config
To complete the monitor activation, you must also include the
smartagent/chrony receiver item in a
metrics pipeline. To do this, add the receiver item to the
receivers section of your configuration file.
See configuration examples for specific use cases that show how the collector can integrate and complement existing environments.
