       dtscp - DTS control program


       With  the  exception  of	 the  following	 subcommands,  this command is
       replaced at Revision 1.1 by the dcecp command.	This  command  may  be
       fully replaced by the dcecp command in a future release of DCE, and may
       no longer be supported at that time.

       exit help quit

       This section describes the commands for the DCE Distributed  Time  Ser‐
       vice  (DTS)  control program (dtscp). The DTS control program is a com‐
       mand-line interface that enables you to synchronize, adjust, and	 main‐
       tain  the system clocks in a distributed network. For a detailed expla‐
       nation of system clock synchronization and management, see the OSF  DCE
       Administration Guide.

       The  DTS control program commands are The advertise command, which con‐
       figures the DTS server as a global server  The  change  command,	 which
       modifies	 the  epoch  and  sets the local time to a new time The create
       command, which establishes a DTS entity (a clerk or server) The	delete
       command,	 which	causes	DTS to exit on the local node The disable com‐
       mand, which suspends a DTS entity The enable command,  which  starts  a
       DTS  entity  The	 exit command, which ends the dtscp management session
       and returns you to the system prompt The help command which invokes the
       dtscp  help service.  The quit command, which ends the dtscp management
       session and returns you to the system prompt  The  set  command,	 which
       modifies	 characteristics  of a DTS entity The show command, which dis‐
       plays characteristics of a DTS entity The  synchronize  command,	 which
       synchronizes  the  system clock with the time obtained from DTS servers
       in the network The unadvertise command, which removes the global server
       entry The update command, which gradually adjusts the system clock to a
       new time

       For more information on any of the above dtscp commands, see the appro‐
       priate reference page in this chapter.

       You can use control program commands from within the control program or
       from the system prompt. To enter DTS commands from within  the  control
       program, first start the control program by entering the dtscp command.
       For example: $ dtscp dtscp> At this prompt you can  enter  any  control
       program command; for example: dtscp> show current time

       To leave the control program and return to the system prompt, enter the
       exit command.

       To enter DTS commands from the system prompt  (interactively  or	 in  a
       command	procedure) enter the dtscp command with an internal command of
       the control program as the first argument. The control program executes
       the command without displaying the control program prompt. For example,
       you can enter the synchronize command as follows: $ dtscp synchronize

       Some dtscp commands have optional arguments or  attributes;  there  may
       also be optional variables for the arguments and attributes.

       See    the    following	  sample   command:   dtscp>	 update	  time
	       /       /	   /
	  Command   [Argument]	 Variable

       You can enter as few as three characters for each DTS command or	 argu‐
       ment;  DTS  commands  and  arguments are unique for three characters or
       more. For example, rather than entering the command  enable  set	 clock
       true,  you  can enter the following abbreviated command: dtscp> ena set
       clo tru

       The dtscp set and show commands have several attributes—pieces or  sets
       of  data	 associated with them. The attribute groups are categorized as

       Set or show the entity's operation.  Show the number of occurrences  of
       an  event  since the entity was enabled.	 Show the current state of the
       entity. (The DTS entity has four status attributes.)  Show  the	global
       servers known by this DTS entity.  Show the local servers known by this
       DTS entity.

       Individual attributes within each of the previously listed  groups  are
       described  in  the  reference  pages for the set and show commands. The
       show command also allows you to specify attribute groups.

   Time Stamps
       All responses to commands contain a timestamp.  The  following  example
       shows	     a	       typical	       DTS	  time	      display:

       The timestamp uses the DTS format that is explained in  Chapter	15  of
       the OSF DCE Administration Guide—Core Components.  In this example, the
       year is 1993, the day is March 16, and the time is 14  hours,  29  min‐
       utes, and 47.52 seconds. A negative Time Differential Factor (TDF) of 5
       hours and an inaccuracy of 3 milliseconds are  included	in  the	 time‐
       stamp.  An inaccuracy value of I----- indicates an infinite inaccuracy.
       This value appears in time displays before a  node's  initial  synchro‐
       nization	 or  after  you enter the change command without specifying an
       inaccuracy value.

       Commands: advertise, change, create,  delete,  disable,	enable,	 exit,
       help, set, show, synchronize, quit, unadvertise, update
