NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     timedc -- timed control program

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     timedc [command [argument ...]]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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 arguments 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

     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 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.
