This plugin checks the status of ntp on a server. For remote hosts, this should be run over ssh with check_by_ssh plugin. It uses ntpq to look for valid candidates (+) or a locked server (*) and will alert if the status is anything other than locked.
# Purpose is to check NTP synchronisation.
# Unlike other ntp checks, it only looks to see if there is a locked reference source
# or viable peer, it does not check delay or jitter.
# The reason for this is that my nagios server is a virtual machine and it seems to
# produce spurious warnings and criticals even though the targets are keeping time satisfactorily.
