NTPTIME(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		    NTPTIME(8)

NAME
     ntptime --	read kernel time variables

SYNOPSIS
     ntptime [-chr] [-e	est_error] [-f frequency] [-m max_error] [-o offset]
	     [-s status] [-t time_constant]

DESCRIPTION
     The ntptime utility is useful only	with special kernels described in the
     "A	Kernel Model for Precision Timekeeping"	page (available	as part	of the
     HTML documentation	provided in /usr/share/doc/ntp).  It reads and dis-
     plays time-related	kernel variables using the gettime() and adjtime(2)
     system calls if available.	 A similar display can be obtained using the
     ntpdc(8) program's	kerninfo command.

     The following options are available:

     -c	     Display the execution time	of ntptime itself.

     -e	est_error
	     Specify estimated error, in microseconds.

     -f	frequency
	     Specify frequency offset, in parts	per million.

     -h	     Display help information.

     -m	max_error
	     Specify max possible errors, in microseconds.

     -o	offset
	     Specify clock offset, in microseconds.

     -r	     Display Unix and NTP times	in raw format.

     -s	status

     -t	time_constant
	     Specify time constant, an integer in the range 0-4.
