TIMEDC(8)				       System Manager's Manual					    TIMEDC(8)

NAME
timedc - timed control program
SYNOPSIS
timedc [ command [ argument ... ] ]
DESCRIPTION
Timedc is used to control the operation of the timed program. It may be used to: o measure the differences between machines' clocks, o find the location where the master time server is running, o enable or disable tracing of messages received by timed, and o perform various debugging actions. Without any arguments, timedc will prompt for commands from the standard input. If arguments are supplied, timedc interprets the first argument as a command and the remaining arguments as parameters to the command. The standard input may be redirected causing timedc to read commands from a file. Commands may be abbrevi- ated; recognized commands are: ? [ command ... ] help [ command ... ] Print a short description of each command specified in the argument list, or, if no arguments are given, a list of the recognized commands. clockdiff host ... Compute the differences between the clock of the host machine and the clocks of the machines given as arguments. trace { on | off } Enable or disable the tracing of incoming messages to timed in the file /usr/adm/timed.log. quit Exit from timedc. Other commands may be included for use in testing and debugging timed; the help command and the program source may be consulted for details.
