The real time monitor is 2 hours different from the system clock. The system clock is 8:20:02 AM but the server time displayed on PRTG System Status as 6:20:02 AM

How do I change PRTG time to sync with the system clock on the server?

Software Version and Server Information PRTG Network Monitor 7.3.3.5634 Operating System: Windows Server 2003 (5.2.2 Build 3790 Service Pack 2), 1 CPUs, Intel Pentium, on "COMPAQ DISK ARRAY SCSI DISK DEVICE" Server Time: 5/27/2010 6:20:02 AM Server CPU Load: 14%

Thanks, Hien Doan EMA Inc

Check your time zone settings under Setup | Account Settings | My Account.

Did you try restarting the Probe Service?

Hello .. Is there already a solution for this? There is the same problem with our remote probes.

See our log file:

2020-10-05 11:37:28.949846 NOTI TId 6120 Probe> Local: 05.10.2020 13:37:28 UTC: 05.10.2020 11:37:28

The current time on the server is: 05.10.2020 13:37:28

Why does the log file then show this time: 05.10.2020 11:37:28 ???

Hello Sebastian,

Because the internally used time zone setting for all of PRTG's logging is written in UTC time zone. As I am assuming that you are located in CEST this would explain the difference of two hours.

This is per design and nothing we strive to change in near future. In case you struggle with Remote Probe connection issues, please raise a support request via email to [email protected] as the cause is most likely something different than a mismatching time zone display.

Best,
Sebastian
