Bug ID 1016033: Remote logging of WS/WSS shows date_time equal to Unix epoch start time

Last Modified: Feb 07, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:, 15.1.3,, 15.1.4,

Fixed In:
17.0.0, 15.1.5

Opened: May 04, 2021

Severity: 4-Minor


Enable the BD_MISC log and notice the REMOTE_LOG buffer printed in the bd logs. The date_time field will be set as closer to epoch time, for eg: "1969-12-31 16:27:00", instead of the current date. The same will be reflected in the remote logs as well.


The date_time information in WS traffic logged to a remote destination is incorrect. This makes correlating data difficult or impossible depending on the traffic.


Remote logging is enabled and the WS/WSS requests are sent to the BIG-IP
