Bug ID 900697: The timezone used in the Postgres log files is different than the timezone used in the restjavad log files

Last Modified: Oct 21, 2020

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ Platform(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
7.1.0, 7.1.0.1, 7.1.0.2

Opened: Apr 17, 2020
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

BIG-IQ always specifies the timezone in the Postgres log files in the Pacific time zone, regardless of the local timezone in which the BIG-IQ is installed. BIG-IQ specifies the timezone in the restjavad log files using the local timezone in which the BIG-IQ is installed.

Impact

Users might be confused as to why the zones are different and why they need to convert the Postgres log time to local time.

Conditions

1. On a BIG-IQ running version 7.1 or newer that is located somewhere other than the Pacific time zone, login to the BIG-IQ using the command line interface. 2. Navigate to /var/log/postgres. 3. Open the postgres log file... the name of the file will be similar to postgresql-2020-04-17.log. 4. Note that the time is set to the Pacific time zone.
