Time change - GMT to BST

Jump to solution

Hi,

We are based in the UK and, in 2 days, our time zone will change from GMT to BST (British Summer Time).

Will SMAX automatically change from GMT to BST or is there any changes I need to make to the system?

If it is already taken care of automatically, I'd be interested to know where trigger/time data is.

Thanks in advance.

Hello

The internal time used in calculations is based on unixtime/epochtime.

If you are asking about the UI time, that's based on the local time on the machine where the browser runs

If you are asking about the time on the nodes where SMAX runs, that is managed at the OS level, not SMAX.

Best regards,

Brindusa

Hello,

Could you please expand on the question?

SMAX doesn't rely on a specific timezone.

Best regards,

Hi Brindusa,

The time shown in SMA-X did change correctly when our clocks changed to British Summer Time (+ 1 hour on GMT), so the question is no longer relevant.

However, I would like to understand what/how triggered the time change.

Any ideas?

Thanks Brindusa, it is the internal time used in calculations which I was most interested in.
Thank you for your response.
