NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for ntpdc (netbsd section 8)

NTPDC(8)			       Programmer's Manual				 NTPDC(8)

NAME
       ntpdc - vendor-specific NTP query program

SYNOPSIS
       ntpdc [-flag [value]]... [--opt-name [[=| ]value]]...
	       [ host ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page briefly documents the ntpdc command.  The [= prog-name =] utility program
       is used to query an NTP daemon about its current state and  to  request	changes  in  that
       state.  It uses NTP mode 7 control message formats described in the source code.  The pro-
       gram may be run either in interactive mode or controlled  using	command  line  arguments.
       Extensive state and statistics information is available through the [= prog-name =] inter-
       face.  In addition, nearly all the configuration options which can be specified at startup
       using ntpd's configuration file may also be specified at run time using [= prog-name =] .

OPTIONS
       -4, --ipv4
	      Force  IPv4  DNS	name resolution.  This option must not appear in combination with
	      any of the following options: ipv6.

	      Force DNS resolution of following host names on the command line to the IPv4 names-
	      pace.

       -6, --ipv6
	      Force  IPv6  DNS	name resolution.  This option must not appear in combination with
	      any of the following options: ipv4.

	      Force DNS resolution of following host names on the command line to the IPv6 names-
	      pace.

       -c cmd, --command=cmd
	      run a command and exit.  This option may appear an unlimited number of times.

	      The following argument is interpreted as an interactive format command and is added
	      to the list of commands to be executed on the specified host(s).

       -l, --listpeers
	      Print a list of the peers.  This option must not appear in combination with any  of
	      the following options: command.

	      Print  a list of the peers known to the server as well as a summary of their state.
	      This is equivalent to the 'listpeers' interactive command.

       -p, --peers
	      Print a list of the peers.  This option must not appear in combination with any  of
	      the following options: command.

	      Print  a list of the peers known to the server as well as a summary of their state.
	      This is equivalent to the 'peers' interactive command.

       -s, --showpeers
	      Show a list of the peers.  This option must not appear in combination with  any  of
	      the following options: command.

	      Print  a list of the peers known to the server as well as a summary of their state.
	      This is equivalent to the 'dmpeers' interactive command.

       -i, --interactive
	      Force ntpq to operate in interactive mode.  This option must not appear in combina-
	      tion with any of the following options: command, listpeers, peers, showpeers.

	      Force ntpq to operate in interactive mode.  Prompts will be written to the standard
	      output and commands read from the standard input.

       -d, --debug-level
	      Increase output debug message level.  This option may appear an unlimited number of
	      times.

	      Increase the debugging message output level.

       -D string, --set-debug-level=string
	      Set  the output debug message level.  This option may appear an unlimited number of
	      times.

	      Set the output debugging level.  Can be supplied multiple times, but each overrides
	      the previous value(s).

       -n, --numeric
	      numeric host addresses.

	      Output  all  host addresses in dotted-quad numeric format rather than converting to
	      the canonical host names.

       -?, --help
	      Display extended usage information and exit.

       -!, --more-help
	      Extended usage information passed thru pager.

       -> [rcfile], --save-opts[=rcfile]
	      Save the option state to rcfile.	The default is the last configuration file listed
	      in the OPTION PRESETS section, below.

       -< rcfile, --load-opts=rcfile, --no-load-opts
	      Load  options  from rcfile.  The no-load-opts form will disable the loading of ear-
	      lier RC/INI files.  --no-load-opts is handled early, out of order.

       - [{v|c|n}], --version[={v|c|n}]
	      Output version of program and exit.  The default mode is	`v',  a  simple  version.
	      The `c' mode will print copyright information and `n' will print the full copyright
	      notice.

OPTION PRESETS
       Any option that is not marked as not presettable may be preset by loading values from con-
       figuration ("RC" or ".INI") file(s) and values from environment variables named:
	 NTPDC_<option-name> or NTPDC
       The  environmental  presets  take  precedence (are processed later than) the configuration
       files.  The homerc files are "$HOME", and ".".  If any of these are directories, then  the
       file .ntprc is searched for within those directories.
