I can not explain in details which difference between two parameters,
However to achieve their goals, I would use:
multitail -Rc 2 -l date
the bad part is that the display is flashing, and if you have other
windows with logs, will simply horrible.
As option, you can use the command watch:
watch -n 2 date
I believe it is more appropriate in this case in specific.
I'm sorry for my limited English.
