I'm trying to set the default timezone in rstudio-server pro so the times & dates are recorded correctly in the monitor log
I know you can set
rserver.conf but the dates remain the same in the log file - it appears that it's just the parsing that gets tweaked so the displayed dates in the web interface are correct. As far as I can tell the dates in
/var/lib/rstudio-server/monitor/log/rstudio-server.log remain UTC. As a Linux admin it's far quicker for me to look directly at the log file than find it in the web admin GUI.
Thanks for the reaching out @russellsmithies !
Do you mind sharing what operating system / distribution you are on?
The only idea that comes to mind for me is to add a simple CLI that converts the time zone for your viewing. This is mostly because I am ignorant of such a feature in the product (which is not to say that it does not exist). Would you be amenable to such a workaround?
In any case, as a pro customer, you are also welcome to send this request to our professional support team at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I have a workaround but it would make more sense to have the logs with the same date format as the OS.

Hey @russellsmithies! I have confirmed that logs are UTC only at present. I have recorded a feature request internally for more formattable logs (specifically, configuring the time zone). Thanks for your feedback!!
Thanx for that.
As someone who spends a lot of time looking through log files it will make life much easier!
