NTPSWEEP(1)			    NTPsec			   NTPSWEEP(1)

       ntpsweep	- print	various	information about given	NTP servers

       ntpsweep	[-V | --version] [-l host]... [-p] [-m number] [-s prefix] [-h
       string] [hostfile...]

       ntpsweep	prints per host	the NTP	stratum	level, the clock offset	in
       seconds,	the daemon version, the	operating system and the processor.
       Optionally recursing through all	peers.

       If no hosts are specified, ntpsweep reports on localhost.

       ntpsweep	relies on ntpq and Mode	6 queries to probe servers. This
       depends on the remote host's restrict configuration allowing queries.
       Nowadays	effectively all	public hosts set noquery, so this script is
       unlikely	to be useful unless you	have multiple specially- configured
       timeservers on a	LAN.

       -l string, --host-list=string
	   Host	to execute actions on. This option may appear an unlimited
	   number of times.

	   Use this option to specify the host on which	this script operates.
	   May appear multiple times. Multiple hosts may be specified,
	   delimited by	commas.

       -p, --peers
	   Recursively list all	peers a	host synchronizes to.

       -m number, --maxlevel=number
	   Traverse peers up to	this level (4 is a reasonable number). This
	   option takes	an integer number as its argument.

       -s string, --strip=string
	   Strip this string from hostnames.

       -h string, --host=string
	   Specify a single host. Deprecated option for	backwards

       -V, --version
	   Print the version string and	exit.

       If hostfiles are	specified, they	are treated as lists of	hostnames to
       be swept, one per line.

       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.
