The time zone in the log of Core Server is not the same on WEB GUI.



If I check the time zone in the log of Core Server, it is not the same as the one checked in WEB GUI.

Please let me know how to change the Core's time zone to my time zone?

When I check a specific point, there is a difference of 9 hours.

Here are the example as below.

1) On WEB GUI (GMT +9) ~ Server Time 2020-10-26 오후 2:55:28 (Korea Standard Time) ~

2) On the Core Log (GMT) ~ 2020-10-26 05:55:13.762296 INFO TId 6716 Core> Configuration File: Saved 735 ms ~

Hello Jonathan,

Thank you very much for your contact.

The Core Server uses UTC time to store its internal data. This is per design and can't be changed. The time settings within the user interface are a projection of this UTC time stamps plus/minus the hours of the corresponding time zone.

This is maybe something that we look into in future, but for now there is nothing you can do about it, I'm afraid.
