NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       timedc - Controls the timed daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       timedc [command  argument...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  timedc  program  (timed control program) controls the
       operation of the timed daemon. The timedc program  can  be
       used  to  perform the following tasks: Measure the differences
 between machines' clocks.  Find the location of  the
       master time server.  Enable or disable tracing of messages
       received by the timed daemon.  Debug.

       Without any operands, timedc prompts for commands from the
       standard  input.  If  operands are supplied, timedc interprets
 the first operand as a  command  and  the  remaining
       operands as arguments to that command.  The standard input
       may be redirected, causing timedc to read operands from  a

       The  timedc commands can be abbreviated.  The following is
       a list of recognized commands: Prints a short  description
       of  each command specified in the argument list, or, if no
       arguments are given, prints a list of the recognized  commands.

       Computes  the  differences  between  the clock of the host
       machine and the clocks of the machines given as arguments.
       This  command  is only valid for machines whose clocks are
       within 12 hours of the host machine clock.  Machines whose
       clocks  are  more  than  12  hours different from the host
       machine clock  will  report  incorrect  time  differences.
       Enables  or  disables  the tracing of incoming messages to
       timed in the /var/adm/timed.log file.  Exits from  timedc.
       Reports the hostname of the master timed server that is in
