NAME

dioddate - get server system time

SYNOPSIS

dioddate [OPTIONS] [-s NAME] [file [file...]]

DESCRIPTION

dioddate obtains the current system time and zone information from a diod server by reading ctl:date. If the --set-time option is specified, sets the local system time on the client; otherwise prints the server time on stdout.
This is a simple way to obtain rough time synchronization before issuing a MUNGE-authenticated attach request, for example in a bootstrap environment where the "ctl" synthetic file system is exported with the "noauth" option.

OPTIONS

-s, --server NAME
The server in IP[:PORT], HOST[:PORT], or /path/to/socket form (default localhost:564).
-m, --msize SIZE
The maximum request size including 9P headers (default 65536).
-u, --uid UID
Try to attach to the server as the specified user (default your effective uid).
-t, --timeout SECS
Force timeout after specified number of seconds (default no timeout).
-S, --set-time
Set the local system time to match the server's time.
