What is SNTP?

     

SNTP is the abbreviation of  Simple Network Time Protocol that is used to synchronize the clocks of networked computer system during data transfer via internet. SNTP is the less complicated version of  NTP (Network Time Protocol) used for  less  heavy data transfer and small number of calculation and workstation. 

Usually  computer implement very accurate timekeeping. For this it uses GPS clock or  other type  of radio clock  that is very useful in scientific calculation. The  basic function of  SNTP is to match the timing of  user's  computer according to Internet Standard. This system is suitable for  less complicated network system. If  there are very few margins even a microsecond difference between the two computers in the network, there will be no data transfer due to data corruption and run-time errors. So it is the basic requirement to match absolute timing of all the system within the network. 

The another advantage to synchronize timekeeping of  the computer appears when any user sends any mail and get the reply of  it before the displaying time  of  sent mail. Though it  works  but literally it is  not correct. So many times personnel computer along with the entire network  can be crashed without this device.
