Type string READONLY


The time zone variable, tzname, contains the name of the time zone on the server at the time the event was read from the event log by pmlog. The time zone may be overridden using the TZ environment variable when running pmlog.

Note that tzname is accessible from pmlog but not in the policy script evaluation.

# pmlog -p `sprintf("%s %s %s, %s, %s", date, time, tzname, event, uniqueid)’

The actual values may vary by platform. In this sample output, the value of tzname is "MDT".

The following example shows the use of the TZ variable acting on the output:

TZ=Europe/Paris pmlog -p `sprintf( "%s %s %s, %s", date, time, tzname, event )’
