Subject TimeZone setting for usage server
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 12:34:41 GMT
Hi Derek,

The settings you have done are enough to change the timezone. The time is still getting reported
in GMT because that's the expected behavior.
Suppose you did these settings :

usage.stats.job.exec.time = 20:30
usage.execution.timezone = Asia/Taipei
usage.aggregation.timezone = Asia/Taipei

Now what happens is, CS converts this Asia/Taipei timezone to GMT timezone and then prints
its equivalent in the usage_job table under the heartbeat column. 
Now the equivalent of 20:30 in GMT is 12:30, so this is the time which will be shown in usage

So, at the end the usage stats will be generated only at the time which you have specified
and the timezone you have specified in the global settings. Only the values will be converted
to GMT and then print.
Hope this helps you.

Thanks and regards,

I've changed the two timezone settings (usage.aggregation.timezone,
usage.execution.timezone) in the Cloudstack Management server under Global Settings to Asia/Taipei
as specified in Appendix A and restarted but the time seems to continue to be reported in
GMT? Is there any other timezone settings?

Any help/pointer appreciated.
