NAME
       hostid - set or print identifier of current host system

SYNOPSIS
       hostid [ identifier ]

DESCRIPTION
       The hostid command prints the identifier of the current host in hexadecimal.  This numeric
       value is expected to be unique across all hosts and is commonly set to the host's Internet
       address.   The super-user can set the hostid by giving a hexadecimal argument or the host-
       name; this is usually done in the startup script /etc/rc.local.
