[mrtg] FW: TimeZones

Can we have some more information?

 1.  Are you running MRTG natively or with RRDTool, and if with RRDTool, which frontend?
 2.  How have you defined the timezone in the server OS?
 3.  How have you defined the timezone in the MRTG cfg files?
 4.  If using a MRTG/RRD frontend, how have you defined the timezone in there?
 5.  How is it going wrong - is it just using the server timezone, or are individual graphs coming in the wrong timezone, or what?

I know this /can/ work with devices in different timezones and their graphs displaying relative to the device's timezone rather than the MRTG server's timezone.  Making it display relative to the browser's timezone is a bit harder.

Hi All

I can't seem to get the timezone command to display the correct time

I'm running fedora 11 and mrtg 2.16.2

I am on CET  (central European time)  GMT +2

I monitor systems across 4 different time zones

If I don't use the timezone command it display my local time if I use the timezone command its 2 hrs behind my local time

I have tried using Amsterdam, Europe or GMT+2 it doesn't matter it is still the wrong time

Any ideas on how t get this to display the correct time
