timedc - Controls the timed daemon
timedc [command argument ... ]
The timedc, or timed control program, controls the operation of the timed(8) 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 arguments, timedc prompts for commands from the standard input. If arguments are supplied, timedc interprets the first argument as a command and the remaining arguments as arguments to the command. The standard input may be redirected, causing timedc to read commands from a file.
The timedc commands can be abbreviated. The following is a list of recognized commands: Prints a short description 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 machine and the clocks of the machines given as arguments. 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 timed in the file /var/adm/timed.log. Exits from timedc. Reports the hostname of the master timed server in use.
