Bug ID 1126677: Inconsistencies with time zones displayed in controller and log files

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
F5OS Velos(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
F5OS-C 1.3.2

Fixed In:
F5OS-C 1.6.0, F5OS-A 1.7.0

Opened: Jul 15, 2022

Severity: 3-Major


System logs on F5OS systems are logged in a mix of the user's configured time zone (when available: controller/appliance) and UTC, depending on which log file you look at.


Troubleshooting and tracing issues can be difficult, as the time zones used in different logs do not match.


If user has a time zone configured that is different from UTC, the logs may show different times for log messages.



Fix Information

Fixed all controller, partition, and blade docker images to be cognizant of the relevant configured time zone for either the chassis or the partition. When a partition is created, it defaults to the configured chassis time zone, but is independently configurable thereafter.
