NAME
timedc -- timed control program SYNOPSIS
timedc [command [argument ...]] DESCRIPTION
timedc is used to control the operation of the timed(8) 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(8), 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 argu- ment as a command and the remaining arguments as parameters to the command. The standard input may be redirected causing timedc to read com- mands from a file. Commands may be abbreviated; 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. msite [host ...] Show the master time server for specified host(s). trace { on | off } Enable or disable the tracing of incoming messages to timed(8) in the file /var/log/timed.log. election host Asks the daemon on the target host to reset its ``election'' timers and to ensure that a time master has been elected. quit Exit from timedc. Other commands may be included for use in testing and debugging timed(8); the help command and the program source may be consulted for details. FILES
