I think they are talking about generating an OC3s worth

as one method, I do not beleive it will create the desired result.
but yes, if you are wanting to measure
latency across your network or a circuit, ntp when properly
synchronized can be quite a useful tool.
I'm not sure what you are saying regarding filling up an OC3 with NTP, but
i do know you can calculate simple latency I believe, measurements from
normal NTP = but strategically analyzed from remote sources and correctly
configured i.e. all s/1 or s/2 with drift.
I wont' say I'm the expert at this, I'm the bb wiretap guy :), not the ntp
latency guy.......but I've been around a bit.
