SYNOPSIS

ntp-wait [-flags] [-flag [value]] [--option-name[[=|value]]]

All arguments must be options.

DESCRIPTION

ntp-wait will send at most num-tries queries to ntpd(8), sleeping for secs-between-tries after each status return that says ntpd(8) has not yet produced a synchronized and stable system clock.

ntp-wait will do this quietly, unless the -v flag is provided. This can be useful at boot time, to delay the boot sequence until after ntpd -g has set the time.

OPTIONS

-n number,--tries-= number Number of times to check ntpd. This option takes an integer number as its argument. The default number for this option is:    
100

The maximum number of times we will check ntpd to see if
it has been able to synchronize and stabilize the system clock.

-s secs-between-tries,--sleep-= secs-between-tries How long to sleep between tries. This option takes an integer number as its argument. The default secs-between-tries for this option is:    
6

We will sleep for secs-between-tries after each query
of ntpd that returns "the time is not yet stable".

-v -, --verbose Be verbose.

By default, ntp-wait is silent.
With this option, ntp-wait will provide status information.

-? -, --help Display usage information and exit.
-! -, --more-help Pass the extended usage information through a pager.
-v [Brq v|c|n--version [Brq v|c|n]] Output version of program and exit. The default mode is ‘v’, a simple version. The ‘c’ mode will print copyright information and ‘n’ will print the full copyright notice.

EXIT STATUS

One of the following exit values will be returned:
0 (EXIT_SUCCESS) Successful program execution.
1 (EXIT_FAILURE) The operation failed or the command syntax was not valid.
70 (EX_SOFTWARE) libopts had an internal operational error. Please report it to autogen-users@lists.sourceforge.net. Thank you.
