Hello.
I want to know how the camera timestamp is given.

I’m using NvMediaImageRec::captureGlobalTimeStamp to know the time of the camera.

When PTP is disabled, the captureGlobalTimeStamp contains the time since the system started.
When PTP is enabled, the captureGlobalTimeStamp contains system time.

What time does CaptureGlobalTimeStamp use?
Is it the Xavier A hardware clock or the Aulix time?

You’re right. captureGlobalTimeStamp uses PTP time. If not available, it uses CLOCK_MONOTONIC clock.

Thank you for your reply.

I don’t know about PTP, so please tell me.
Does PTP change hardware clock of Xavier A?
Or PTP change system clock of Xavier A?

I tried changing the system time by “date” command.
But captureGlobalTimeStamp is not changed.

In addition, I tried to change the hardware clock by “hwclock” command, but couldn’t.
The following error is displayed, Xavier doesn’t seem to be have a hardware clock.

hwclock: Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.

Thank you.

Please take a look at the following doc/topic for the information.
