NAME

  timedc - Controls the	timed daemon

SYNOPSIS

  timedc [command  argument...]

DESCRIPTION

  The timedc program (timed control program) controls the operation of the
  timed	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 operands,	timedc prompts for commands from the standard input.
  If operands are supplied, timedc interprets the first	operand	as a command
  and the remaining operands as	arguments to that command.  The	standard
  input	may be redirected, causing timedc to read operands from	a file.

  The timedc commands can be abbreviated.  The following is a list of recog-
  nized	commands:

  ? [command ...]

  help [command	...]
      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.



  clockdiff host ...
	  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 dif-
	  ferent from the host machine clock will report incorrect time
	  differences.

  trace	on | off
	  Enables or disables the tracing of incoming messages to timed	in
	  the /var/adm/timed.log file.

  quit	  Exits	from timedc.

  msite	  Reports the hostname of the master timed server that is in use.
