timedc [command argument...]
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

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

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
