Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1
    
    The timestamp used to create the RSEDAEMON log file name is
    2 hours off when TZ=Israel.  It seems that GMT time is used
    instead of IST.
    
    For example, the log file is created with the name
    rsedaemon.RSED#20151105120310.log.
    However, the first entry in the log file has a timestamp of
    2015.11.05 14:03:10.417 IST.
    
    Conversely, the RSE server log file time is created with the
    same time as the first entry in the log file.  For example,
    the RSE server log is created with this name:
    RSED#20151105140310.log.
    The first entry in the RSE server log file is:
    2015.11.05 14:03:28:185 IST

    ****************************************************************
    01.The timestamp used to create the RSEDAEMON log file name is
       2 hours off when TZ=Israel. GMT time is used instead of IST.
       For example, the log file is created with the name
       rsedaemon.RSED#20151105120310.log. However, the first entry
       in the log file has a timestamp of 2015.11.05 14:03:10.417
       IST. Further, the 'Changed' timestamp for a PDS member is
       written in GMT time zone in some host configurations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.There are several logics to calculate timestamps in native
       host modules. All of the logics in the native host modules
       are updated to calculate timestamps based on the time zone
       offset information provided from java modules. All of
       timestamp information generated from RDz should be
       controlled by Java after applying the fix.
