Hi All,

This is regarding NTPQ command .

when i run ntpq >lassociations and ntp> associations command , i am getting
a same output  but when i check a ntpq man page . it is give a following
line.

lassociations
Obtains and prints a list of association identifiers and peer statuses for
all associations for which the server is maintaining state. This command
differs from the associations command only for servers which retain state
for out-of-spec client associations (i.e., fuzzballs). Such associations
are normally omitted from the display when the associations command is
used, but are included in the output of lassociations[char46]

associations
Obtains and prints a list of association identifiers and peer statuses for
in-spec peers of the server being queried.

I have  tried a to find a difference between in-spec and out -of-spec
client associations  but i didnt get it.

Could someone clarify difference between in-spec and out -of-spec client
associations ?

Thanks in advance .
