> David, would it be possible to get the flags your sending to ntpq to check for the leap second flag in your program so we can run them using ntpq on a linux system ? I'd like to setup a monitor for this condition in our environment.

In essence:

1: send 'ntpq -c rv <test-server>'
2: look for 'leap=01' or 'leap=10'
3: leap is pending if either is found
4: send 'ntpq -c assoc <test-server>'
5: for each assoc-id send: 'ntpq -c "rv <assoc-id>" <test-server>'
6: parse the result as in (2) and (3)

I hope that helps, and that I haven't misread my own code!  The commands 
are executed on a Windows system.  If you come up with the same in a 
script for another OS I could add it to my Web page to help others.
