Stratum 1 NTP Cluster

TorIX hosts a stratum 1 NTP cluster which is globally reachable and handles 500,000 queries per minute, mostly from within North America.  Our servers are reachable at ntp.torix.ca using IPv4 or IPv6 and we are listed as part of NTP Pool Project.  We run multiple separate time sources for redundancy.

ntp1.torix.ca (206.108.0.131 or 2602:fde5:2a::11)
ntp2.torix.ca (206.108.0.132 or 2602:fde5:2a::12)
ntp3.torix.ca (206.108.0.133 or 2602:fde5:2a::13)

You are free to use our NTP servers if you wish.  We recommend you use hostnames, if possible, rather than hard-coding the IPv4 or IPV6 addresses.  The hostname ntp.torix.ca will return one of the above IP addresses in a round-robin fashion and this is the preferred hostname to use if you only wish to configure one entry.

AS112 Project

We run an AS112 Project node to help reduce the load on the global domain name system.

NLNOG RING Node

We participate in the NLNOG RING which is exclusive to network operators and allows them to trouble-shoot and debug network issues across the world.
