The time offset dialog can be used to modify all timestamps in your log files by a fixed amount. This command is useful when you intend to merge multiple log files but the timestamps of the log files are not in sync. For example, if you need to merge multiple log files which are recorded in local time in different time zones. The command is also useful when log files recorded on different machines are a millisecond or two out of sync.
Once a time offset has been applied to a file, it will be displayed in LogViewPlus with a notification icon indicating that a time offset is in use. You can edit the time offset by double-clicking on the notification icon.
Note that this command is not available on merged files or filters.
The offset type is used to determine if the offset should be calculated based on a fixed time period or a relative period between two dates. Changing the offset type changes the form input options.
The offset can be provided in hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds.
If you would prefer to set an offset to a specific time, you can use the Full Date Offset type. This type will show two full timestamps. The first is a reference point and cannot be modified. The second is the date that you would like to use instead of the reference time provided. The difference between these two timestamps will be used to calculate the time offset.
The offset action can be either add or subtract depending on if you need to increase or decrease the time interval.
Once your offset has been defined, you can select all of the log files to which it should be applied.
Deletes the currently applied offset from all log files selected in the "Target Log Files" tab. Files will automatically be refreshed after the offset has been deleted.
Applies the defined offset to all log files selected in the "Target Log Files" tab. Files will automatically be refreshed after the offset has been applied.
