dioddate - get server system time
dioddate [OPTIONS] [-s NAME] [file [file...]]
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.
-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.
