bpdate -- Set the time on a compute node
This program replicates the master node's time-of-day to a compute node. The program has one required argument: the number of the compute node.
This program is usually run from the node_up script, so that the time
gets set on the compute nodes at node boot. After the node is up,
bpmaster daemon on the master node works with the bpslave daemon on
each compute node to synchronize the time-of-day across the cluster.
The following options are available to the bpdate program.
- The number of the node to set the time on.
Set the time on node 1:
[user@cluster user] $ bpdate 1
