[ntp:hackers] NTP 4.2.7p98: monlist stopped working?

The monlist command was limited to a small amount of data overall
because the server sent all of it at once, and there was no way to
retransmit so as you increase the limit on packets, you also increase
the odds of losing one when operating over a network.

Hopefully you'll find ntpq's replacement, mrulist, a nice upgrade.  It
allows arbitrarily large amounts of data to be transmitted, and
provides for selection and sorting options.

Cheers,
