ntp-wait(8) wait for NTP server to synchronize


ntp-wait [ -f ] [ -n tries ] [ -s sleep ] [ -v ]


ntp-wait waits until the locally running ntpd is in state 4 (synchronized). This could be useful at boot time, to delay the boot sequence until after "ntpd -g" has set the time.


Force hard failure if state is unknown.
-n tries
Number of tries before giving up (default 1000 = 10min+)
-s sleep
Seconds to sleep between tries (default 6s = 10/min)
Be verbose.
