The Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is a protocol used to synchronize clock throughout a computer network. PTP was originally defined in IEEE1588-2002 standard.
To use PTP functionality in DPDK, users can use DPDK example application “ptpclient” present in DPDK source code, ptpclient application uses DPDK IEEE1588 API to communicate with a PTP master clock to synchronize the time on NIC and, optionally, on the Linux system.
