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.
