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

     timedc - timed control program

     timedc [command [argument ...]]

     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, 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
	     argument list, or, if no arguments are given, a list of the
	     recognized 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 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;
     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
