In this section

Time stamp injection can be controlled per packet by a control bit in the dynamic packet descriptors. This is illustrated in the net/timestamp_inject code example (see DN-0449).This section describes how to configure time stamp injection globally.
Note: This section only applies to NT200A02, NT100A01 and NT50B01 SmartNICs running on a test and measurement image.

Global time stamp injection

The TimestampInjectAlways parameter determines if a time stamp is injected in all frames to be transmitted.

ntservice.ini code line

The syntax for the ntservice.ini code line setting the global time stamp injection is:

TimestampInjectAlways' '=' ( 'true' | 'false' )

Example:

TimestampInjectAlways=true

Default value

This table shows the default value.

Parameter Default Value
