    Command:

    adjtime

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

         #include <sys/time.h>
    
         int
         adjtime(const struct timeval *delta, struct timeval *olddelta);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         The adjtime() system call makes small adjustments to the system time, as
         returned by gettimeofday(2), advancing or retarding it by the time speci-
         fied by the timeval delta.  If delta is negative, the clock is slowed
         down by incrementing it more slowly than normal until the correction is
         complete.  If delta is positive, a larger increment than normal is used.
         The skew used to perform the correction is generally a fraction of one
         percent.  Thus, the time is always a monotonically increasing function.
         A time correction from an earlier call to adjtime() may not be finished
         when adjtime() is called again.  If olddelta is not a null pointer, the
         structure pointed to will contain, upon return, the number of microsec-
         onds still to be corrected from the earlier call.
    
         This call may be used by time servers that synchronize the clocks of com-
         puters in a local area network.  Such time servers would slow down the
         clocks of some machines and speed up the clocks of others to bring them
         to the average network time.
    
         The adjtime() system call is restricted to the super-user.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUES

         The adjtime() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the
         value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
         error.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

         The adjtime() system call will fail if:
    
         [EFAULT]           An argument points outside the process's allocated
                            address space.
    
         [EPERM]            The process's effective user ID is not that of the
                            super-user.
