Use this Kiwi Syslog Server registry setting to change the separation character used in dates.
|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|
|Default value||- (dash)|
|Type||Character, or string of characters|
Normally the current date is represented in the YYYY-MM-DD format using a dash (-) as the separation character. You can change the separation character to any character you like. For example, some countries use a forward slash (/) as a date separator.
Be aware that changing the date separator may make the log files unreadable by some log file parsers and reporters. Reporting software may be looking for the dash (-) 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)
A normal Kiwi ISO log file format message is formatted like this:
2004-05-27 10:58:22 Kernel.Warning 192.168.0.1 kernel: This is a test message
If you change the separator character to forward slash (/), 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 time separator character.
