PTP state machine is initializing
PTP state machine has detected the PTP port as faulty
PTP state machine has (administratively) placed the port in Disabled state
PTP state machine is waiting for reports from other state machines
PTP state machine is a Master candidate, and is waiting for reports from other state machines
PTP state machine has selected this port as the PTP master for the network
PTP state machine is not the master, nor is it synchronized to a master
PTP state machine has identified a master, and this port is attempting to synchronize to it
PTP state machine has selected this port as a slave to another (master) PTP state machine
FEATURE_PTP_PARAM_STATUS is a whole number representing the FEATURE_PTP_STATUS_ enumerations shown above. The parameter will report on the status of the PTP state machine when the user performs a get on this feature.
Steady state values of this parameter are _STATUS_FAULTY (the clock is not functioning properly), _STATUS_DISABLED (the camera’s default state, but is otherwise only gets to this state via user direction), _STATUS_SLAVE (this clock is the slave to the connected (maser) clock), and _STATUS_MASTER (this clock is a master to all subtended clocks, and given our camera is a IEEE-1588 ordinary clock, we must be the domain grandmaster clock).
