NAME

       ntptime - read kernel time variables


SYNOPSIS

       ntptime [ -chr ] [ -e est_error  ] [ -f frequency ] [ -m max_error  ] [
       -o offset  ] [ -s status  ] [ -t time_constant ]


DESCRIPTION

       This program is useful only with special kernels described in theA Ker-
       nel  Model  for  Precision Timekeepingpage. It reads and displays time-
       related kernel variables using the ntp_gettime()  system call. A  simi-
       lar  display can be obtained using the ntpdc  program and kerninfo com-
       mand.


OPTIONS

       -c      Display the execution time of ntptime  itself.

       -e      est_error Specify estimated error, in microseconds.

       -f      frequency Specify frequency offset, in parts per million.

       -h      Display help information.

       -m      max_error Specify max possible errors, in microseconds.

       -o      offset Specify clock offset, in microseconds.

       -r      Display Unix and NTP times in raw format.

       -s      status Specify clock status. Better know what you are doing.

       -t      time_constant Specify time constant, an integer  in  the  range
               0-10.
