line out of message log >

This has been working fine, but now it will not sync.
Please advise what is problem.
This has been an ongoing problem for months, like musical chairs.

Dear SC Support,

The message log indicates my computer & SC server are in sync to (3) decimal points.
To the same numbers.

Yet a few lines below,
this line sent to support earlier today,,,
it indicates a (1-3) second difference which appears to be completely random.
The line Today just showed (1-2) seconds each time attempted to get synced up.
I have had a third party on my machine multiple times in past to check my clock and analysis showed my machine is synced with correct (world) time down to tiny fraction of split second. (No variance)

For last (2) days it never did sync up as it usually does after a few attempts,
no matter the times attempted.

Having the time off by a few seconds will not make any impact to the functioning of the system, especially since you are using the Denali Exchange Data Feed for your data, which does not rely on the local computer clock for the timestamping.

The messages will show up in your Message Log, but you can ignore them.

If you really want to sync up your computer clock, then you need to do it to our servers. The following setting allows for this to occur, but you have to have Sierra Chart running in an account that has Administrator privileges or is being run as Administrator:
