Fixed In:

Opened: Jul 27, 2016
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Currently there is no consistent way to display timestamps. Some places use 12-hour notation while other 24-hour. Analytics UI has been using 24-hour historically. However, now that the BIG-IP system has a setting for this under System :: Preferences, Analytics will use this value to determine whether timestamps display in 12-hour or 24-hour format.

Impact

Analytics pages will use 12-hour format on systems that are set to display 12-hour by default. This differs from the always-24-hour format that appeared in the past.

Conditions

Viewing timestamps.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Analytics pages use system preferences to determine whether 12-hour or 24-hour time formats are displayed.

Behavior Change

Analytics UI time format is now determined by System clock preferences. Previously, there was no consistent way of displaying timestamps. Some places use 12-hour notation while other 24-hour. Analytics UI has been using 24-hour historically. However, now that the BIG-IP system has a setting for this under System :: Preferences, Analytics will use this value to determine whether timestamps display in 12-hour or 24-hour format.
