ntpa - NTP Analyzer daemon program
ntpa --config file [--temp path] [--writepid file] [--daemon name]
The ntpa daemon is the core process in the NTP Analyzer system.
ntpa(1) is responsible for collecting data from NTP daemons. Data are
collected using ntpq(8) and ntpctl(8). The ntpa daemon also generates
graphs and web pages and perform other tasks like sending status mails.
The graphs and HTML files generated by ntpa are placed in the ntpa www
and CSS files are also located in the ntpa www directory.
Pages can be made responsive by configuring them with Bootstrap and
jQuery. This way they are viewable on mobile devices and not only on
traditional PC screens.
ntpa can be started with the following options:
Mandatory configuration file.
Specifies the working directory. Default is /tmp
Specifies where the pid file should be written.
The name of the instance.
--help Show help and version info.
