NAME
ntptime - read and set kernel time variables SYNOPSIS
ntptime [ -MNchr ] [ -e est_error ] [ -f frequency ] [ -m max_error ] [ -o offset ] [ -s status ] [ -t time_constant] [ -T tai_offset ] DESCRIPTION
This program is useful only with special kernels described in the A Kernel Model for Precision Timekeeping page. It reads and displays time-related kernel variables using the ntp_gettime() system call. A similar display can be obtained using the ntpdc program and kerninfo command. OPTIONS
-c Display the execution time of ntptime itself. -e est_error Specify estimated error, in microseconds. -f frequency Specify frequency offset, in parts per million. -h Display help information. -m max_error Specify max possible errors, in microseconds. -o offset Specify clock offset, in microseconds. -r Display Unix and NTP times in raw format. -s status Specify clock status. Better know what you are doing. -t time_constant Specify time constant, an integer in the range 0-10. -M Switch to microsecond mode. -N Switch to nanosecond mode. -T tai_offset Set TAI offset.
