What the timestamp means in collected data and events

The timestamp that appears in collected health and performance data, or that appears as the detection time for an event, is based on different criteria depending on the version of ONTAP that is running on your clusters.

It is highly recommended that you use a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server to synchronize the time on your Unified Manager servers, ONTAP clusters, and web browsers.

Note: If you see timestamps that look incorrect for a particular cluster, you might want to check that the cluster time has been set correctly.
