LogFileTimeSeparator

Table of contents
No headers

Use this Kiwi Syslog Server registry setting to change the default separation character used in times.

Section (32-bit Windows OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Properties
Section (64-bit Windows OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Properties
Value (STRING) LogFileTimeSeparator
Default value : (colon)
Type Character, or string of characters

Normally the current time is represented in the HH:MM:SS format using a colon (:) as the separation character. You can change the separation character to any character you like. For example, some countries use a dot (.) as the time separator.

Be aware that changing the time separator may make the log files unreadable by some log file parsers and reporters. Reporting software may be looking for the colon (:) characters and may get confused when they are not present.

This setting applies only to the following formats:

  • Kiwi format ISO yyyy-mm-dd (Tab delimited)
  • Kiwi format ISO UTC yyyy-mm-dd (Tab delimited)

The following is a default Kiwi ISO log file format message:

2004-05-27 10:58:22 Kernel.Warning 192.168.0.1 kernel: This is a test message

If you change the time separator character to dot (.), the message would become:

2004-05-27 10.58.22 Kernel.Warning 192.168.0.1 kernel: This is a test message

You can also change the date separator character.
