The global overview includes date/time the Alert Inbox does not.

In addition to that are all the times normallized to the same timezone?

This would help with knowing how long ago the time was in scenarios where the monitor or the person viewing the monitor are in a different timezone than the monitored server.

  • Hi Elliot

    The Global Overview does show the local time in the top right-hand corner because of the real-time nature of the overview pages. With the Alert Inbox we didn't think the current time would be relevant. But I can raise an enhancement request to have similar functionality on the Alert Inbox if this aids you in any way?

    All data is stored in the SQL Monitor data repository as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This time is then converted to the local time of the machine that you are using to browse the pages.

    Hope this helps
