    This plugin checks the clock offset with the ntp server


    Usage:

    Options:
     -h, --help
        Print detailed help screen
     -V, --version
        Print version information
     --extra-opts=[section][@file]
        Read options from an ini file. See
        https://www.nagios-plugins.org/doc/extra-opts.html
        for usage and examples.
     -4, --use-ipv4
        Use IPv4 connection
     -6, --use-ipv6
        Use IPv6 connection
     -H, --hostname=ADDRESS
        Host name, IP Address, or unix socket (must be an absolute path)
     -p, --port=INTEGER
        Port number (default: 123)
     -q, --quiet
        Returns UNKNOWN instead of CRITICAL if offset cannot be found
     -w, --warning=THRESHOLD
        Offset to result in warning status (seconds)
     -c, --critical=THRESHOLD
        Offset to result in critical status (seconds)
     -o, --time_offset=INTEGER
        Expected offset of the ntp server relative to local server (seconds)
     -t, --timeout=INTEGER:<timeout state>
        Seconds before connection times out (default: 10)
        Optional ":<timeout state>" can be a state integer (0,1,2,3) or a state STRING
     -v, --verbose
        Show details for command-line debugging (Nagios may truncate output)

    This plugin checks the clock offset between the local host and a
    remote NTP server. It is independent of any commandline programs or
    external libraries.

    Notes:
     If you'd rather want to monitor an NTP server, please use
     check_ntp_peer.
     --time-offset is usefull for compensating for servers with known
     and expected clock skew.

     See:
     https://www.nagios-plugins.org/doc/guidelines.html#THRESHOLDFORMAT
     for THRESHOLD format and examples.

    Examples:
      ./check_ntp_time -H ntpserv -w 0.5 -c 1
