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

     timedc -- timed control program

     timedc [command [argument ...]]

     The timedc	utility	is used	to control the operation of the	timed(8) pro-
     gram.  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	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 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.

     /var/log/timed.log	       tracing file for	timed
     /var/log/timed.masterlog  log file	for master timed

     ?Ambiguous	command	 abbreviation matches more than	one command

     ?Invalid command  no match	found

     ?Privileged command  command can be executed by root only

     date(1), adjtime(2), icmp(4), timed(8)

     R.	Gusella	and S. Zatti, TSP: The Time Synchronization Protocol for UNIX

     The timedc	utility	appeared in 4.3BSD.

     The latest	timedc code has	been made available as a port (net/timed) in
     preparation of removal from base in FreeBSD 13.0.

FreeBSD	13.0			 June 6, 1993			  FreeBSD 13.0
