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.
