This article describes how you can show human-readable time information in the logs.

In the log file, access time is shown as seconds from epoch time (1970/01/01 00:00:00 GMT). To show the time in human-readable format, use the logconv command as follows:
  1. Enter command
    # /opt/f-secure/fsigk/misc/logconv [logfile] ("fsigk" package)
    # /home/virusgw/misc/logconv [logfile] ("virusgw" package)

The result is shown on standard output. The --tail [n] option can show specified lines from end of the file. You can also use shell redirection to output to a file.

For detailed command options, see Chapter Time Display Conversion Tool in Administrator's Guide for F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper.
