# The syslog server can’t show the time correctly

Issue Description

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.

Solution

(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 :

(2) If the syslog server can’t transfer the time zone , we can use the command ‘info-center loghost x.x.x.x local-time’ to solve this problem .
