TIMEDC(8)               NetBSD System Manager's Manual               TIMEDC(8)

NAME
     timedc -- timed control program

SYNOPSIS
     timedc [command [argument ...]]

DESCRIPTION
     timedc is used to control the operation of the timed(8) program.  It may
     be used to:

        Measure the differences between machines' clocks,

        Find the location where the master time server is running,

        Enable or disable tracing of messages received by timed(8), and

        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 argu-
             ment list, or, if no arguments are given, a list of the recog-
             nized 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(8) in
             the file /var/log/timed.log.

     election host
             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

DIAGNOSTICS

             abbreviation matches more than one command
     ?Invalid command
             no match found
