Path to the configuration file from which the observation socket address will be retrieved. If not specified this defaults to /etc/ntpd-rs/ntp.toml.

-f format, --format=format

The output format for the status command. If not specified this defaults to plain. Alternatively the format prometheus is available to display the output in an OpenMetrics/Prometheus compatible format.

-h,  --help

Display usage instructions.

-v,  --version

Display version information.



Checks if the configuration specified (or /etc/ntpd-rs/ntp.toml by default) is valid.
