Any telemetry data from a network that indicates an incorrect date and time is not usable for troubleshooting potential network issues. Presented herein are different scenarios for detecting incorrect timestamps and leveraging Internet Protocol (IP) geolocation and swarming techniques to correlate with other devices sending telemetry information in order to autocorrect timestamps. When it is possible to autocorrect timestamps, discrepancies can be resolved for both closed-loop (e.g., bidirectional) communication scenarios and open-loop (e.g., one-way or edge collector) communication scenarios.
