SASWebReportStudio4.3_KeyActions.log, JAVADATE, and SAS APM

Hi All.

Fogive me if I have posted in the wrong community.

We have recently implemented the SAS APM (Audit Performance Monitoring) tools and have run the reports, we are specifically interested in the Report Usage Data. 

While analysing the data I noticed the Report usage hours looked wrong (most of the report usage out of business hours).  Looking into his it seems that the JAVADATE read from the SASWebReportStudio4.3_KeyActions.log is GMT, how can one change this to the local time zone (when logged not analysed), not happy just adding 13hrs as we have daylight savings etc.

Any help greatly welcomed.

Regards

Barry

Techsupports Answer

The SAS Web Report Studio key action log can't have the timezone information set in the javadate field. This value is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) the reason is that UTC is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time.

The data and time fields thats are listed in the log are adjusted to the system time, they represent the same value as the UTC javadate field just displayed in the local timezone of the server.

For example

<javaDate>1328238257418</javaDate> UTC time == <date>3/02/12</date><time>2:04 PM</time> Australian Eastern Time
