NAME
ntp_mon - Monitoring Options INTRODUCTION
The ntpd includes a comprehensive monitoring facility which collects statistical data of various types and writes the data to files associ- ated with each type at defined events or intervals. The files associated with a particular type are collectively called the generation file set for that type. The files in the file set are the members of that set. File sets have names specific to the type and generation epoch. The names are constructed from three concatenated elements prefix, filename and suffix: prefix The directory path specified in the statsdir command. name The name specified by the file option of the filegen command. suffix A string of elements bdginning with . (dot) followed by a number of elements depending on the file set type. Statistics files can be managed using scripts, examples of which are in the ./scripts directory. Using these or similar scripts and Unix cron jobs, the files can be automatically summarized and archived for retrospective analysis. MONITORING COMMANDS
filegen name file filename [type type] [link | nolink] [enable | disable] name Specifies the file set type from the list in the next section. file filename Specfies the file set name. type typename Specifies the file set interval. The following intervals are supported with default day: none The file set is actually a single plain file. pid One file set member is created for every incarnation of ntpd. The file name suffix is the string .n, where n is the process ID of the ntpd server process. day One file set member is created per day. A day is defined as the period between 00:00 and 23:59 UTC. The file name suffix is the string .yyyymmdd, where yyyy is the year, mm the month of the year and dd the day of the month. Thus, member created on 10 December 1992 would have suffix .19921210. week One file set member is created per week. The week is defined as the day of year modulo 7. The file name suffix is the string .yyyyWww, where yyyy is the year, W stands for itself and ww the week number starting from 0. For exam- ple, The member created on 10 January 1992 would have suffix .1992W1. month One file set member is created per month. The file name suffix is the string .yyyymm, where yyyy is the year and mm the month of the year starting from 1. For example, The member created on 10 January 1992 would have suffix .199201. year One file set member is generated per year. The file name suffix is the string .yyyy, where yyyy is the year. For example, The member created on 1 January 1992 would have suffix .1992. age One file set member is generated every 24 hours of ntpd operation. The filename suffix is the string .adddddddd, where a stands for itself and dddddddd is the ntpd running time in seconds at the start of the corresponding 24-hour period. link | nolink It is convenient to be able to access the current file set members by file name, but without the suffix. This feature is enabled by link and disabled by nolink. If enabled, which is the default, a hard link from the current file set member to a file without suffix is created. When there is already a file with this name and the number of links to this file is one, it is renamed by appending a dot, the letter C, and the pid of the ntpd server process. When the number of links is greater than one, the file is unlinked. This allows the current file to be accessed by a constant name. enable | disable Enable or disable the recording function, with default enable. These options are intended for remote configutation com- mands. statsdir directory_path Specify the directory path prefix for statistics file names. FILE SET TYPES
clockstats Record reference clock statistics.
