Hi @aksshm, it’s not currently possible to change the TZ in influxd’s logs (we hard-code UTC when configuring the logger). It’s unlikely that we would ever expose a configuration option to support use of a different TZ. As a work-around, we’d recommend passing the logs through a separate processing system to parse / rewrite the timestamps.
