NAME
     timedc -- timed control program

SYNOPSIS
     timedc [command [argument ...]]

DESCRIPTION
     The timedc utility 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 argu-
     ments 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 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 in the file
	     /var/log/timed.log.

     election host1 [host2 ...]
	     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
     /var/log/timed.log        tracing file for timed
     /var/log/timed.masterlog  log file for master timed
