Dear Matteo, dear competitors,

the time stamp is really used in the metrics is the one that is created 
where the integration program is running.
This timestamp is automatically computed locally using the computer's 
clock. For this reason, the only machine that must be synchronised with 
the NTP client is the one runnning the integration program (the socket 
server or the itnegrated java package).

I hope this clarifies some doubt,

best regards,
