Subject timestamps and timezones
Date Wed, 10 Jun 2009 06:09:30 GMT
Hi all.

I've been thinking about how we manage timestamps.  The other week,
Owen mentioned to me that he thought using UTC throughout was the
right thing to do.   Though it's not at all obvious to me where to do
the correction, if an Agent has a local clock that isn't UTC.  Perhaps
pass the agent timezone through in a per-chunk tag?

Agents, collectors, and processors can all be in separate timezones. :-/
