<?xml:namespace prefix = "v" /><?xml:namespace prefix = "o" />S5700 connects to third party syslog server, then syslog server will records the logs of S5700. After he configures the command ‘clock timezone UTC add 03:00:00 on switch, it can’t show the time correctly. For example, the current time is 21:11, while logs time is 08:35.

after you change the timezone of the switch , you need to add a keyword "local-time " after the info-center configuration as following:
info-center loghost x.x.x.x local-time

1)   In fact, when device send the syslog, it use UTC time. for example, the current time is 15:11, while the UTC time is 12:12, so the log time shows 12:12, then it needs syslog server to transfer the time to clock time zone , while if the syslog server can’t transfer, then it will show as the following :
