Precision Time Protocol (PTP) management messages are general messages sent to PTP-enabled switches on the data plane. On Arista switches, its behavior depends on the configured PTP mode. 

Until now, all PTP packets received on Arista switches with PTP boundary mode enabled will automatically be sent to

PTP 1-step Boundary Clock (or 1-step BC) is similar to 2-step BC in function, but doesn’t send the PTP followup message. The timestamp present in the PTP followup message’s preciseOriginTimestamp field is sent in the PTP sync message’s originTimestamp field along with a non-zero correctionField.

This brief TOI describes a small update made to Arista’s implementation of the Best Master Clock Algorithm (BMCA),

This feature allows users to view most recent history of offset from master, mean path delay and skew values via CLI

Since the introduction of PTP Monitoring feature[1], PTP is capable of recording recent metrics for offset from

The `ptp forward-v1` command configures the switch to forward Precision Time Protocol version 1 packets as regular multicast traffic. By default, when PTP is enabled and PTPv1 packets are received on the PTP enabled interfaces, these packets are trapped by the CPU, logged and discarded.

This article describes the usage of the ptp free-running source clock command, which selects a time source used by a switch running the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) while it is in a free-running state.

From the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) perspective, Multi Chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) peers are two physical

Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) provides support for frequency synchronization over Ethernet between devices traceable to an external frequency reference, like a primary reference clock, as specified in ITU G.8261.

This feature makes the PTP agent aware of VLANs, running with a single Best Master Clock Algorithm (BMCA). It allows
