This chapter describes the basic time-stamping and time synchronization configuration of a SmartNIC with Napatech Link-Capture™ Software.

Note: These features do not apply to NT50B01 nor to the Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA running Napatech Link-Capture™ Software:
  • Synchronized transfer of block statistics
  • Synchronization of OS time to SmartNIC time
  • NT-TS time synchronization
  • PPS-triggered SmartNIC clock sampling
  • PPS output
  • PTP time synchronization
