TIMEDC(8)		  BSD 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:

     +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 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
